I'm still considering a mirror door G4 system as a daily "work" desktop,
and I'd want to upgrade the drive system.
How can I find out which SATA controllers the Mac can boot from?
I don't care if CD/DVD is on IDE, I just want SATA for the hard drives.
Did you run your SATA cables from the card, under the motherboard, to
the drive bays?
