    How to Boot a Hard Drive From an IDE Controller Card:

    CF to IDE Card

    Older motherboards usually have two IDE controller ports, each allowing two devices to be attached to two-connector ribbons. One port is typically used for hard drives, the other for optical drives such as a CD or DVD drive. If you need additional IDE ports or if the motherboard IDE ports are faulty, you can install an IDE controller card, which will give you one or more IDE ports you can use to connect your hard drive. The IDE controller card functions just like an IDE port on the motherboard, including the ability to boot your computer from a drive connected to the card.

    • Install the IDE controller card, if you have not already done so. Open your computer case and look for an open slot of the type your card uses. Securely push the card into the slot and secure it to the chassis with a screw on the top brace. The card should be recognized by the motherboard without needing to boot into Windows.
    • Consult the product documentation or the label affixed to the controller card for appropriate jumper settings. Jumpers are small plastic sleeves that fit over two of the pins on the back of the drive. Jumpers tell the controller card whether the drive is the only drive on the system, the primary "master" drive or the secondary "slave" drive. Set the jumper as instructed for your purposes. Since this will be a boot drive, it should be set as "master."
    • Connect the IDE ribbon from the controller card to the hard drive. It will only fit one way. In addition, you'll need to connect a power cable (usually a 4-pin Molex connector) to the hard drive.
    • Boot the computer and repeatedly press the "F2" key or whatever key sequence your motherboard manual states will allow you to access the BIOS setup menu. Once you reach this menu, use your arrow keys to navigate until you find the "Boot Sequence" options. The controller card should already be recognized, but it may appear as a "SCSI" device. Reorder the boot sequence so that the CD or DVD drive is first, followed by the controller card and then your regular IDE hard drive.
    • Reboot the system, which should now boot from the drive connected to the controller card, assuming your CD/DVD drive does not contain a bootable disc. If you do not have a bootable operating system on the drive connected to the controller card, then the system will boot from the regular drive. To make the controller drive bootable, simply install the Windows operating system on the drive attached to the controller as you would any other hard drive.

    • 1 x Dual CF to 2.5" HDD Interface Adapter

I have bought this product

00:00:00 05-19-2011 Worked Perfectly Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I used this in a 2008 MacPro, I am already using the extra sata ports for two ssd drives, so plugging my bluray drive directly to SATA wasn't an option. This little adapter just works. I plugged it straight into the back of my bluray drive, plugged in the ide cable from the previous dvd drive, and fired it up. It works flawlessly. No configurations, no software, it just works. I'm very happy with my purchase.

00:00:00 04-14-2011 Great adapter Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I needed a hard drive because I was running out of space, I had a Seagate Freeagent external hard drive just I had some problems with it, like it needed to be plugged into a outlet, it took up 2 outlets because of the size, also took a few minutes to load up on my PC, another thing when I would download things I would get disk overload, so I decided to take the external hard drive apart and put the actual hard drive that's in the shell in my PC, it works pretty good with this adapter, I am not getting disk overload that much and when I do its only a few seconds.

00:00:00 02-22-2011 Just What I Needed Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I'm not very computer savvy, so I had no idea I had bought a DVD-ROM drive that was different than what I had previously. I didn't have the correct connections, but this cheap converter worked perfectly.

Product FAQs
  • Can I connect a Dane- Elec cf card to cf to IDE port and have it boot?
  • What you have tried should be possible with a Parallel IDE/CF converter.
    Some Recommendations:
    1. You definitely not use Windows in such an environment, use ubuntu Linux instead
    2. You should use an ultra-fast 4 GB card, because the speed difference is noticeable currently as compared to HDD-s
    3. Make sure that you are aware of that CF cards have a limitation (as all flash cards) for rewritting files. That means, frequently changing files should be put into a RAM-disk.

  • What is dual CF to HDD interface adapter?
  • It's the new addonics dual CF-SATA HDD adapter which takes two Compact Flash cards and turns them into a single drive usable as a direct 2.5 inch SATA drive replacement in a computer. The two Compact Flash cards can be configured as RAID 1, RAID 0, or as one large compact flash drive. You can then insert the dual CF-SATA HDD adapter into a computer using a mounting bracket.

  • Are drivers needed for this adapter to work?
  • As a matter of fact, no drivers are needed for adapter this to work, this sounds like a great way to utilize inexpensive CF cards as a power efficient 2.5 inch hard drive replacement.
