3.6.3 On-Chip Primary / Secondary IDE Device
IDE Primary Master/Slave PIO/UDMA Mode (Auto). The channel has
both a master and a slave, making four IDE devices possible. Because
two IDE devices may have a different Mode timing (0, 1, 2, 3, 4), it is
necessary for these to be independent. The default setting "Auto" will
allow auto detection to ensure optimal performance.
3.6.4 SATA Mode
The setting choices for the SATA Mode are IDE, RAID and AHCI Mode.
Select [IDE] if you want to have SATA function as IDE. Select [AHCI]
for Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) feature, with improved
SATA performance and native command queuing. Select [RAID] to use
SATA for RAID.
3.6.5 Note: On-Chip Serial ATA
Choose the status of serial ATA. The default setting is "Auto" which lets
the system arrange all parallel and serial ATA resources automatically.
The "Disabled" setting disables the SATA controller. The "Combined
Mode" combines PATA and SATA, and maximum of 2 IDE drives in
each channel. The "Enhanced Mode" enables both SATA and PATA, and
a maximum of 6 IDE drives are supported. The "SATA Only" setting
means SATA is operating in legacy mode.
3.6.6 PATA IDE Mode
This item allows you to select the parallel ATA channel. Setting options
are Primary and Secondary.
3.6.7 SATA Port
This feature allows users to view the SATA port as primary or secondary
channel. If PATA IDE Mode is set to "Primary", it will display "P1, P3
Secondary" which means that SATA1 and SATA3 are secondary. If
PATA IDE Mode is set to "Secondary," it will display "P0, P2 Second-
ary" which means that SATA0 and SATA2 are secondary.
