More context needed: hardware

The motherboard model # would help, and if you have that information
An Internet search on that model # + Linux + sata might get you a quicker answer.. Where is that file you are transferring in Linux with that slower rate, is it on the windows partition ?
--how does windows do in transferring data from the Linux partition into windows in terms of speed
I guess I have to assume some things with no context provided
I could go on and on..but you must be getting the idea by now..
- You have windows and Linux installed into there own partitions, so that they boot separately
- You may have a shared directory (folder), but on which OS ?
- If you don't have a shared folder, you mount the alternative OS partition depending on which OS you boot
- If the boot OS is windows, how does it see the Linux file system
--which methods do you use ?

I don't know what mouse has spikes means
but mouse or system instabilities makes it sound like power problems.. And how do you determine the transfer rate in Linuxhttp://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-fast- ... -disk.html
In a terminal, check
hdparm -t /dev/sda
--where /dev/sd? is your Sata device hard drive /partition
Do you have a clip on that drive setting it into Sata 1/II mode (150MB/s), ,lowest speed for compatibility with mainboard chipsets..http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/blog/20 ... t_see.htmlsata drive clips, jumpers..http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/new ... ves-stupid
In fact, considering that no single SATA drive can actually sustain transfer speeds above 150 MB/s (not even 100 MB/s), the faster interface is probably the most useless of the new features defined by the committee. It'll only give you an advantage when using port multipliers. NCQ, staggered spin-up and hot-plugging all make a much bigger difference, especially in server environments. The 150 GB Raptor, for example, supports all those features, but uses a 1.5 Gb/s interface (which doesn't prevent it from being faster than drives with a 3 Gb/s interface, BTW)"
