Welcome to Windows 7 Forums. I did the HDD boot order stuff in the bios too I didn’t see anything in the manual that would suggest anything How can I check to see if it is using it, or not? What I’d recommend doing is resetting the CMOS on the board and see if the black port will detect your drive s then. I was going to change that now using this method: I had to do a lot of fiddling around to get it running off the black SATA1 port.

I have an a8n-sli and no ahci! It seems they update the bios more on that than they do with the one I have.

SATA II on the ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe

Welcome to Windows 7 Forums. I hope someone can help me out! Any advice you slj give me would be very much appreciated.

Do you know what would show up for an nVidia chipset? Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums–revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended.


Sata drives, no AHCI. The info is clealy on the drive label, or one can go to the Seagate website where the information is clearly shown by drive model.

It may be that no board with that chipset nForce4 SLI does. Oh, by the way, this mobo’s chipset is nVidia nForce4, and it does not have certified W7 drivers Intel Architecture Day.
