I used iATKOS.r3 and am running SATA on a BFG nForce 680i SLI board.


I did have to connect an IDE HDD and IDE DVD in order to install. I didn't have to install to the IDE, I just had to have BOTH IDE devices connected. After install, I shut down and removed both IDE devices and am running SATA only with no problems.
