Are you sure? The way I read that page, you have to do (1) AND (2),
i.e. fit the DIP switch AND move R46. Are you suggesting that it's
an OR, and that the resistor doesn't need to be moved if the switch
No my reading is that you are moving R46 so that you use the dipswitch
instead of the fixed pullup. To make the dip switch work you have to
move the "hard coded" resistor. I see no mention of moving resistors
when setting different settings on the dip switch (which would be silly
after all), so if the dip switch had been preinstalled and the resister
pre configured for dip switch use, then life would have been much much
OK, I think I see what you're saying; you're making a hypothetical
comment about how it cold have been done differently. In practice,
though, given the boards that we currently have, we need to both add
the dip switch and move the resistor in order to boot from SATA. This
moves the required skills from something that I could probably do
(adding the switch) to something that is beyond my soldering "comfort zone".
