Here is a question if I went out and bought a mb say the Asus 975 DW Deluxe and I wanted to hook 4 sata 2 hard drives to run off motherboard in a NON RAID setup. What settings in bios would I need to have OS see all the drives correctly.

I had a computer tech in my area try to get my older MSI 865 PE mb he hooked up 3 sata hds off mb and it only saw the boot drive not the other 2
hard drives he resorted to a sata 2 controller and it saw all hard drives for 10 minutes but, disappeared. I assume newer mb's handle this better but, why was this so hard that a computer guy couldn't fix it.
it should come up automatically but its good to check the BIOS if it doesn't, EIDE days with setting all those Slave/Master Jumpers are long gone... but i'm still in the ancient PC phase

2nd question... idk... give me a moment...

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
