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....
