I am looking for a little help. I just built a system using a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3r mobo and am not understanding some things that are going on with it. When i first put the system together and booted it up, it was dog slow. I finally got WinXP loaded on it after some tinkering, but it still reamained a dog. It took like 4 minutes to boot up. So, after looking throught the bios numerous times, I kept noticing that my HDD showed up on IDE Channel0 Master and my dvd/cd rom showed up as IDE Channel1 Slave. (Both, hdd and dvd/cd rom are SATA drives.) The hdd and dvd/cd ALSO showed up as IDE Channel4 Master and Slave, respectively. The system would only detect a drive if something was plugged into the SATAII0 port. The why I have it hooked up now is with the HDD in the SATAII0 port and the DVD/CD rom in the SATAII2 port. I went into the bios and set the IDE Channel4 to "none" so that it wouldnt try to detect a drive there and then the system started acting normal. It boots up super quick now. So, my question is, why do the drives show up on multiple channels? Do I have a bad mobo?
