Screw-up Corrected

The new, different SATA controller got here two days ago.  This one didn’t come with any cables, so I just used the ones that we already had, which necessitated turning the one with a 90° connector around.  I turned the computer off, plugged it in, and connected the hard drives to it.  This time, I knew where in the BIOS settings to turn off the on-board SATA controller, and after doing that, the card’s BIOS screen showed that it actually does have RAID capabilities, although the Newegg page about it didn’t mention RAID anywhere.  But unlike the other one, it also works as a non-RAID SATA controller card, and the system booted just fine and has been working without a hiccup since then.  I just hope we don’t have another problem with this computer that can be fixed with a card, because we now have no free slots on this motherboard.
