    i read something about win2000 and udma :
    http://www.rdisruption.com/2000/2k0020.htm
    "By default, Windows 2000 doesn't enable UDMA/66 support. You need to add a UDMA 80-pin ribbon connector
    to the drive (be sure that your system supports UDMA) and manually enable this support."
    Does this apply to SP1 or so ?
    Because :
    i found this on the microsoft site :
    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q260/2/33.ASP
    List of bugfixes in SP2
    Windows 2000 does not support ATA 100 (Mode 5) for IDE hard disks. All ATA 100 IDE hard disks that are
    used with Windows 2000 default to ATA 66 (Mode 4).

    My Question : is it necessary to manually implement the reg file to let win2000 support udma 66/100
    or is it fixed in win2000 sp2 ?
    thanks

    I have set up numerous win2k machines. When I check to see that DMA is enabled it always has been without me doing anything. These machines are all via chipset so I do not know if that makes a difference.
