SATA support - Plans?

Post by DementedHacker » Sat Jan 06, 2007 6:54 pm

Are there any ideas on which version of ROS you're going to add SATA support?

Maybe PATA emulation for SATA drives in BIOS?

I think different BIOSes have a "compatibility mode" for SATA drives. Means the BIOS presents them to the OS as if they were PATAs.
Maybe Reactos works in that mode, for now?

The only disadvantage is that you must then change BIOS settings each time when starting Reactos or starting another OS which has been installed on SATAs normally without this emulation.
