  1. I have a P4S8X with serial connecters on board. I purchased a connector to put on my hard drive an connect to serial but cannot get it to work. It came with no instructions. I followed manual and changed what had to be changed in bios but it wont boot from the hard drive. Looks like I spent 20 some odd dollars for nothing.

    You have changed the boot order list in the bios?
    A SATA to IDE adaptor should do the job. If the SATA is enabled in the bios and listed as one of the boot devices then it should work. When you say it won't boot, is it detecting the drive but not booting from it, or just not detecting it at all?
