Because I have a lot of applications/product to reinstall and test, and I 
can't do that now. All produsts are upgraded to the latest and safest 
version, but there are too many customization that could force me, now, to 
a long stop during migration.

So, now, I prefer to move all "as is".

After I'll solve this problem, I can plan a two weeks period in which I may 
do all without hurry.

Now I need just a standard PCI IDE controller.
