IDE boot on K8N Neo4 Platinum???

  1. Hi

    I have been looking for a new mobo and I have found the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum. This looks to be quite a good board but when looking in the description I found that it did not state that it supported boot from the IDE drives.

    http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=637 - here it says 'supports boot from LAN, USB and SATA.'

    Does this mean that I will have to use a new SATA boot disk instead of sticking with my old IDE???

    Thanks

    Phil

    That motherboard can use (and boot from) IDE hard drives no problem.

    Phil,

    I am running this mobo with a AMD 3800+ X2 dual core and I have 2 IDE drives hooked up to it. It has the connections for the SATA drives also. Very easy to install and get working. I highly recommend this board I love it.
