I have a caddy from newmodeus.com - http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=
The problem is:
1) BIOS delays for 30 sec when caddy is used (I'm on F0E, others have fan problems - fan works all time)
2) in Windows hdd has MDMA2 mode instead of UDMA6
I made a software workaround, described it here:
The main concept of the workaround is described here:
This issue happens not only on HP 8710p. It also happens on 8710w, 8510w, 8510p and lots of other models with PATA CD-Rom.

Hi! Is there any update on this subject?
Quite sure If I did order caddy with drive included from HP site I'd have the same problem.
