    PATA/IDE is dead. Time to move on and buy a SATA Hard Disk.

    You said you don't want to use existing HDD then all new HDD is market are SATA only.

    If you want to use it anyway then I dont think any Fusion Mobo has PATA port. Either you have to use it with PCI Card with PATA Slot or Buy the USB case and convert it in External USB HDD for data storage.

    oops..my bad...it was a typo..i meant i want to make use of existing HDD. I dont want to keep idle a perfectly working HDD.

    If the motherboard does not support PATA is there any alternate ways? i have seen PCI card with PATA slot but how reliable is the same?

    I don't mind it using as an External USB HDD but here also is there any external case that support PATA hard disk.

    Buy 3.5 USB IDE Hard Disk Drive Case Casing Pata | Lowest prices on Computers & Peripherals at Rediff Shopping. USB Enclosure for pata disk.

    If the Card is of reliable brand then off course it will work and I don't know any more alternate way.

    The closest you will get is an ECS AM3+ Bulldozer motherboard (A990FXM-A) that does have PATA ports.

    ECS Web Site

    I don't know how you can buy it in India, try contacting Rashi peripherals since they are the distributors for ECS products in India.

    However, I would not recommend ECS branded motherboards, so you would really be taking a risk buying it.

    but that's not a socket FM1 mobo Op is asking for.

    @ OP - tell us your budget for the mobo.
