Description
Sets the SATA emulation mode with the following options:
RAID + AHCI–Requires one of the two Intel SATA option ROMs to run. In this mode, the
Option ROM manages the drives so they are not shown in Device Configuration. This option
is the default and offers best performance.
Separate IDE Controller–Offers standard SATA supports (four ports only).
Combined IDE Controller–Makes the SATA controller look like an IDE controller and offers
best IDE compatibility (two ports only).
Primary SATA Controller
Enables you to disable the ESB-2 SATA controller primary SATA ports from the BIOS perspective,
but the controller is not hidden. The BIOS will ignore these ports and will not configure and
enumerate any devices connected to it. However, the operating system can re-enable and
enumerate devices upon booting.
Secondary SATA Controller
Enables you to disable the ESB-2 SATA controller secondary SATA ports from the BIOS
perspective, but the controller is not hidden. The BIOS will ignore these ports and will not configure
and enumerate any devices connected to it. However, the operating system can re-enable and
enumerate devices upon booting.
Selects the Drive Protection System (DPS) Self-Test (also called DST, Drive Self-Test). You are
prompted for the drive on which to run the test.

the menu entries. Boot Order presents these selections:

USB device
Hard Drive
Integrated SATA
Integrated IDE
Broadcom Ethernet controller
Diskette Drive
Boot devices can be disabled from participating in the boot order process. These order changes
are reconciled with the IPL/BCV historical information and stored in the physical ROM part when
the F10 Setup changes are confirmed by selecting File>Save Changes and Exit.
