Incorrect.

As stated repeatedly, the HD set first to boot in BIOS will determine that.

The IDE jumper settings are only to differentiate the IDE HD from the OD in the BIOS.
im confused now

For this thread only put your SATA Hd Drive in the bin.
We are now talking this in thread IDE ONLY.

Take a look at page 26 of your manual.

We are talking about master or slave for your IDE, not the SATA HD. (Virtual bin)

Quote:
6) IDE (IDE Connector)
The IDE connector supports up to two IDE devices such as hard drives and optical drives. Before
attaching the IDE cable, locate the foolproof groove on the connector. If you wish to connect two IDE
devices, remember to set the jumpers and the cabling according to the role of the IDE devices (for
example, master or slave). (For information about configuring master/slave settings for the IDE
devices, read the instructions from the device manufacturers.)

You don't need to do a thing with the SATA HD.

Just use an IDE cable and set the jumpers so HD is Master and OD is Slave.

You might need to get a different IDE cable if you can't make it fit both.
