Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

Although you can adapt a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drive to connect to a standard SATA controller card, the card must support SAS commands in order to communicate with SAS drives. SAS drives have a different command set that is not present on SATA controllers.

This SATA controller card only supports standard SATA drives.

This device does not support the ATA Packet Interface (ATAPI) protocol. ATAPI is required for optical drives, including CD-ROM drives, DVD-ROM drives, and Blu-ray players. Because this device does not support ATAPI, optical drives are also not supported over any IDE, SATA, or eSATA connections.

For a list of products that do support ATAPI, refer to the following FAQ:

How to

In order to use a hard drive plugged into a hard drive controller card as your operating system, you need to install the operating system onto the hard drive while it is plugged into the expansion card. To do this, complete the following:

Note: Not all hard drive controller cards have drivers that allow you to install the operating system onto the hard drive. All of the hard drive controllers that display this FAQ include this capability.

Before you begin, consult the documentation that came with the motherboard to make sure that the motherboard or BIOS supports booting from an expansion card.

  1. Back up any data on the hard drive.
  2. Make a copy of the drivers from the website onto a floppy disc, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive. The drivers that you download depends on the operating system that you want to install.
  3. Install the hard drive controller card onto your motherboard.
  4. Plug the hard drive into the controller card.
  5. Turn on your computer and open the operating system install wizard.
  6. Before you select the hard drive that you want to install the operating system onto, select the option to install third-party drivers.
  7. Point the driver installer to the floppy disc, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.
  8. Install the drivers.
  9. Select the hard drive on the hard drive controller card as the location where you want to install the operating system.
  10. Complete the on-screen instructions to finish installing the operating system.
