RE : Re: SATA problem on Tiger K8W (S2875ANRF)


Thanks, but I speak about a BIOS configuration.

In general, there are 2 ways to configure a SATA interface : one is 'compatibility',
and then the SATA drive is seen like a standard IDE one.

But in my BIOS, I have only Ultra and Raid.

So I wonder if this possibility exists on my board, or not.

Best regards,
