I want to use my SATA HDD with my very old ASUS A7V8X-X motherboard (made in 2003). I intend to buy a cheap adapter for this, something similar to this one:
Would there be any issues if I want to boot from this SATA drive? My impression is that these kind of adapters convert SATA signal and commands to PATA directly and such a low level conversion should be transparent to the motherboard and BIOS - in case the BIOS doesn't support SATA. My motherboard definitely doesn't support SATA.
Has anyone ever used such an adapter to support a boot drive? Any success stories?
