Have you tried to change the settings for SATA as Legacy? Any difference?
Have you tried the DVD writer on each ports? Does it work when the drive is not connected to the ssytem?
It is good to have the latest bios version installed due to fixes etc.
All the best,
Tried all of your suggestions but nothing changed. Whatever I have plugged into the SATA ports it makes no difference to the BIOS which shows SATA PORTS 0 & 1 as greyed out and "not detected".
Any other ideas? before I ditch this mobo.
HI, I read elsewhere that whilst in the BIOS setup you could do CTRL+F1 and this would re-instate greyed out options. Anyone know if this works?
