    The 'simple' answer here, is to remove the cable to one of the existing motherboard connected drives, then hook this up to the PCIe SATA Card. This Will free-up an MB connector for the SSD. I have a similar arrangement in 2 PCs where a SATA Expansion Card is in use and these can be problematic with boot drives. The best way round this is to swap the connections. Ideally your SSD should be attached to Port 0.

    What message do you see from the SSD?
    AddOn ROM Display Mode has always been set to Force BIOS as I have never altered it since I installed the mobo in 2009!

    The message I see both for both the PCI-e card and the SSD seems like just displaying the basic information of model, version, interface etc. but disappears too quick for me to read all of it.

    Windows loads and performs perfectly well with the SSD connected to the PCI-e card. I have tried the HDD
    and they all show as removable when
    connected to the card.
    I guess that that is how things work and I will just have to accept it other than going the whole hog and replacing the mobo with a more up to date one which I do not wish to do as this one works fine for me.

    Tried that but the pc then cannot find the SSD and therefore asks to reboot and insert a boot media.
