I just built a new computer, and i have 2 160 gb WD SATA hard drives. when i installed then, they were detected as 3rd and 4th slave drives, and when i boot up the computer, it says no IDE H.D.D. drive detected, and i have to press F1 every time i start up my computer to resume. Is there a way i can fix this, and get my motherboard to read these drives as master? I have them plugged into SATA 0 and SATA 1. My motehr board is the A8r32 - MVP Deluxe, and i am running XP Pro x64. thanks for any help.
