One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that when you switch your BIOS from
'legacy' mode to SATA mode, you lose some of your IDE capability. (can't
have as many drives)
It wasn't clear from what was posted as to exactly what got changed (and
where) but this sounds to me like a "problem" with the BIOS which may or may
not be "the way it works".
