    D975XBX2 Doesn't Recognize Blue SATA 4-7 Sockets

    Michael894

      I am running an Intel D975XBX2 motherboard. It's like my system doesn't even recognize the blue SATA 4-7 sockets. I am running Windows 7 right now, but the issue is the same for Vista and XP. The Intel online support says to plug the drive into a black socket to solve the problem. Trouble is, all the black sockets are in use. (Black SATA 0-3 work fine!) Others on this forum have said they fooled around with their bios to get the blue sockets to work. I have tried every combination I can think of to no avail. I would like to be able to plug in another internal hard drive, or set up a Marvell array with the blue SATA 4-7 sockets. Could anyone who has gotten the blue sockets to work, let me know how??
