Howto install SATA disk on calamity

January 30, 2007


1. plug SATA disk into SATA RAID 1 connector
2. set BIOS to disable SATA BOOT ROM
3. set BIOS to enable Promise Controller
4. set Promise operating mode to IDE (not RAID)
5. set hard disk BOOT order so SATA disk is first
6. done

notes:
1. linux (or grub) thinks SATA disk is /dev/sda
2. linux (or grub) thinks this should be hd1, instead of hd0
3. it only loads if you set it to be hd0 when booting via grub
4. windows XP doesn't see the SATA disk on install (unsolved)
