Last week I asked in regards to using an Ultra ATA HD with a SATA HD. I'm guessing it's best to use the SATA as the master and the ATA as the slave. I have windows 2000 on the ATA which will be removed, but do I have to remove all the data off of the hd. Thanks for the help.

That's what I would recommend doing. Let the SATA drive be your primary. Your system should be able to read the old drive with 2000 without problems.

Good luck
