Hi all,
I have a circa 2003 Matsonic MS8308EP mobo. I have installed a Sata PCI expansion card which recognises and accesses a 500Gb Sata drive under XP. The OS boots and runs from my existing IDE drive.
I would like to know if it is possible to boot an OS from this Sata drive even though my current Bios doesn't show Sata drive, it is usable once XP has booted and loaded from existing IDE drive.

Any help greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.
