Sata and IDE Drives Issues

sata-ide_lg
I’ve got a new motherboard for my computer recently. It’s a Gigabyte GA-965G DS3 series motherboard which comes with 4 sata II ports and 2 onboard sata II ports which provides 3GB/s specifications. Well I’ve gone through a number of troubles migrating to my new sata II drive. My previous drive is a IDE ATA Seagate 160GB drive which has 5 separate partitions and loaded with Windows XP and another partition is loaded with Vista ultimate. So as I got my new sata drive which is a 320GB sata II drive, I decided to put it as my first drive ( Disk 0 ) and the other IDE channel is assigned to disk 4. Both were master drives and mother preferences were set to give the main priority at the sata drive for booting. Anyway I did a cloning using Acronis True Image and cloned the whole drive into the new 320GB drive. After that I found out that the IDE drive is still booting and the 320GB sata drive is setting itself as second preference. So I dig out information regarding this and found out the facts lies beneath.. Here is some of the facts :

Sun and MySQL – What will be the future

’d like to think that the acquisition of MySQL by Sun will be seen as good news also by the core group of users who form the active MySQL community. This is because Sun is a safe haven for MySQL. Sun knows Open Source, and to the extent things change, I expect Sun to add value to our community. I don’t expect huge change, though. We continue to work with our quality contributors, we continue to provide our MySQL Forums, the Planet MySQL blog aggregator, we remain on the #mysql-dev and #mysql channels on Freenode, we provide MySQL University lessons, we meet at the MySQL Users Conference. We’ll put effort into connecting the many FOSS enthusiasts and experts at Sun — whom we will now learn to know better — with our active user community.

CFOS Speed 4 – Get the Fastest Internet Speed

cFos Traffic Shaping reduces delays during data transfer and allows you to surf the Internet up to three times faster. So you can use the full bandwidth of your connection!

During TCP/IP transfer, a certain amount of data needs to be confirmed upon reception before more can be sent. Stalling data confirmation results in delays and transfer-rate slowdowns, thus forcing the sender to wait. Especially for DSL and cable, it is possible to slow a download to a crawl by choking the upstream channel (which has the smaller bandwidth anyway) with an upload. This is because in such a scenario there is not enough upstream bandwidth left for data confirmation.
The standard solution so far has been to try and compensate for this by increasing TCP window size, thereby allowing more data to be sent without immediate confirmation. The main problem here is that this also leads to high ping times (latency) and significant delays during Webpage rendering. Latency of up to 2 seconds is not uncommon for TCP windows with a size of 64k. In short, huge window sizes just won”t let you achieve full download speed.
