comment Multiple network adapters, how does it affect the connection?
My wife's machine has 3. One has to be disabled because it is prone to linking at a very low bandwidth and causing headaches, the others coexist fine.

comment Changing hard disk with ssd, can I migrate contents so that I can switch drives without a hassle?
Since I've done this multiple times I would certainly say it's possible.

comment Windows won't see new drives
I said this wasn't a hardware issue because I knew people would start out assuming it's a hardware failure. I've seen this exact same failure on completely different hardware and after reinstalling the old hardware will work fine. This is software, not hardware!

comment Two PC's, shared power grid, can this be reasonably done?
@cybernard Any idea where they might be found? I've found the splitter for the 8-pin power connector but I'm having zero luck with the 24-pin.

@cybernard So you're saying a splitter like that will let you run two motherboards on one PSU?

comment Two PC's, shared power grid, can this be reasonably done?
@cybernard 7/64, fully patched. I can't find anyone who has solved the compatibility problem, I'm just interested in the data.

comment Two PC's, shared power grid, can this be reasonably done?
@cybernard I already have the latest drivers. Flashing the BIOS isn't going to solve it but could trash the array. I just want to copy the data off.

@cybernard Windows sees it but gets an error 10. Google turns up one person who got past that--but only to be stopped by another error.

comment Ethernet cable too long?
The only way to truly test a cable is push data through it. Just because it works at a lower frequency doesn't mean it works at frequency.

comment 44-pin IDE to 40-pin IDE extension
In my experience, 44 pin IDE drives are laptop drives, the last 4 pins are power. Somewhere around here I have a little circuit board that takes a 40 pin IDE and a power connector and plugs in a 44 pin IDE.

comment Why so many steps in adding new disk and what do they do?
@Celeritas Yes, the table is created at initialize--but it's empty. You then have to decide what to do with the space.
