  1. hello, im swapping motherboards and im planning on using this trick http://www.softwaretipsandtricks.com/windowsxp/articles/376/1/Changing-Motherboards
    but i dont understand which my "current storage controller is" when he says

    "Before you swap out the current motherboard go to device manager and select the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller and select your current storage controller. Right click, select update driver and select install from a list or specific location. Click don't search I will choose the driver to install and select the standard dual channel IDE controller."

    because when i go into my IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers i have a list that looks like this

    Primary IDE channel
    Primary IDE channel
    Primary IDE channel
    secondary IDE channel
    secondary IDE channel
    secondary IDE channel
    standard dual channel PCI IDE Controller
    standard dual channel PCI IDE Controller
    standard dual channel PCI IDE Controller


    anyone know what my current storage channel/s is?

    /edit i changed the question because this is what i need to know :p
