Not exactly, the old promise controller doesn't have a driver for win 7 so I just stayed with the original IDE HDD's ( as master & slave )that had my XP system on it. Here was a previous question I asked concerning this older computer that may tell you more about the configuration:
Let me try to get my mind around this...
You want to stick a few more (antiquated) hard drives in your system, but instead of using the IDE controller (because
They are already in use with other antiquated HDDs), you want the IDE drives connected to your far superior SATA ports via an inferior USB adaptor?
You realize that your superior SATA controllers are being taken up by two (gasp) CD/DVD ROM drives, while your hard drives are sitting on a much slower IDE.
When my computer was XP, the swap file was a 4GB partition on drive D and the rest was for storage. For win 7, I wanted to get rid of that 4 GB partition and have just 1 partition for storage on drive D. I deleted the 4 GB partition and extended the remaining partition and clicked to format and the option it gave me was for a Dynamiic Disk so that's what I did. But now ( for some reason ) that 4 GB partition is back.
Move the data over from the one you want to delete, then delete, once deleted just expand the other partition.
Why is that drive dynamic to begin with?]
