recently I got the DQ77MK motherboard and I installed an intel 525 mSATA SSD (120G).
The newly installed drive is recognized under the operating system (Win7) and is fully functional,
however, I cannot see it in BIOS SATA management page, only in the boot options.
How can I make sure the SDD is running at it's designed port speed (6Gb/s)?
Pages 26-27 from the DQ77MK Technical Product Specification provide additional information. However, I will request a correction on this document since the information does not appear to be clear regarding the port speed.
You may try a third party tool such as Speccy.
