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...
