You brought a non-branded, cheap PCI sata card from eBay.
Just send it back and get a refund.

As an aside (& so i don't have to make another new thread) .... i'm looking at turning my triple boot system into a dual boot after learning the benefits of running a virtual machine.
As a result ... if i was to dual boot 2x Windows 7 (don't ask why - it's not important) then which HDD would the BIOS be 'looking at' first in order of boot sequence? The one which had Win7 installed on it first, or the one which was the second install? Thanks.

Any take on the 2nd question?... Looking to get the machine sorted today hopefully

So what do i do?
PCI bus can not handle SATA 2/3 speeds..this might be another cause of the BSOD

I repeat the above...?
So what do i do?
I figure as i've got 2 optical drives - one of them is the default boot option.
I have 2 SSDs, both of which are bootable drives with Win 7 installed on.
So both those drives plus the default optical drive should be connected to the MOBO SATA ports. That's 3 of my 5 available slots taken up.
I would guess the other 2 should both be taken up by the non-bootable HDDs which i'm just using for storage.
And then, any add on card should take the 'other' optical drive.
Either way, i need another SATA port, but i don't want BSODs, obviously. What to do then? What to buy?
