    Thers nothing to do with Sata hdd or any other,,,,, Procedure is same for all the hard drives as per my knowledge.... correct me If Iam wrong....

    steps to make mirrored image of a hdd...

    -> make the primary hdd as master and the other hdd on which u want it to be mirrored as slave....
    -> make the partions on slave exactly the same as in primay hdd
    -> before proceeding further right click on one of the partion of primary dirve and choose the option change to dynamic volume and same for all the partitions....
    -> after the above step.. right click on the desire drive for which u want the mirrored ...there u can see 3-4 options ...displaying the kind of volume u wante it...like mirrored , raid 5, etc...
    choose start mirroring the drive....
    It shows the process and it makes mirror of all the dirves soon ..depending on the drive size....
    Here all its done....
