I have a motherboard with only two SATA ports. I am using both, one for a HDD and one to a CDROM/DVD.
I want to connect a second SATA hard disk drive(HDD), but as stated the mother board I have does not have an extra SATA connector.
So I just unplugged the CDROM/DVD SATA connector and power connector and used them to connect this second SATA HDD to the existing system.
Question: Is this correct way of connecting a second SATA disk as slave?
The PC did booted up(Windows-7 x64) but could not show me the second disk as a drive?
Question 2: If everything else is fine, should this drive be detected?
