ok i just got through installing a new wd raptor on a asus a8n32 sli mobo.

first off i did not install sata drivers during the windows set up. instalation continued so i let it.

was that bad?

how do i know if iam running my drive in full sata mode and not in sata ide mode?
the bios says its running in ultra dma 6. is that correct?
if iam not going to run a raid array do i even need the sata drivers?
if i want or need to can i install the sata drivers within windows without having to reinstall?
