How does sATA and pATA hard-disk drive letter order relate?

s = serial p = parallel

Normal pATA bases drive letter order thus:

Primary IDE before Secondary IDE
Master before Slave
Primary partition before Logical Drive (in extended partition)

So how does sATA fit into all of this?

thanx

Don't know about sATA, but normally Parallel ATA Drives will come
last... Your Primary and Secondary drives come first, then your SCSI
drives if you have any, then most likely your USB
drives/pen-drives/memory cards, then your pATA... Though if you
install a memory card after you install the pATA driver it will come
last....
