Is my System drive set up correctly ???
on Apr 2, 2005 at 9:37:44 am

I am using the P5AD2-E Premium, and I have the System Drive
on the SATA1 connector, and the two raid-striped data drives on

However, I notice in the BIOS that the System drive "appears" as
a "third IDE drive", and "Configure SATA as" is set to "Standard IDE".

This makes things *appear* as though the the full speed benefits of SATA
operation might not be in effect (e.g. it might be emulating a slower IDE device).

If I change "Configure SATA as" to "AHCI", then the System drive will not
boot and Window Installation will not detect it.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is this drive operating at full speed in
SATA mode as it should? Is there a different configuration that would
get the most out of the drive?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can share with me.


ps The data drives seem to be just fine. Everything else is so-far-so-good.
