    Default EP45-UD3P F7 Bios doesn’t see my SATA drives

    Hello Guys!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    There is one thing in my computer that worries me. Maybe someone could help :)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I’ve got EP45-UD3P (rev. 1.0) motherboard with F7 Bios. In the Bios, in Standard COMS Features, I can see the list of IDE Channels (0 to 3, Master or Slave) (- no IDE drive detected). There are no SATA drives, and I don’t know where I can find these drives in other options of Bios.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    All the drives I have installed in my comp. are Sata (both HDDs and DVD, like You can read in my signature).<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    I would like to add that under Windows Vista I can see all the drives, and during post I can read on the screen something like:<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Code:
    Controller Bus #00…
      PORT 00 Hard Drive /the appropriate full name of the drive/…
      PORT 01 Hard Drive…
      …
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Should I change to F9 Bios ? What else can I do to see my drives under Bios?<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Waiting for your hints and ideas about that little problem :)<o:p></o:p>

    As far as I remember Sata drives disappear from the standard bios setup page when you enable AHCI/Raid.

    If you were to loadup the bios defaults, they should reappear**

    **But DONT do this if you have a raid array

    If windows detects them, then all is fine.

    Hello again!

    In my Bios in "SATA RAID/ AHCI MODE" I choose AHCI (other options, as far as I remember, are RAID and DISABLED). So, as You say, it is normal situation now that my Sata drives disappear??

    So the only thing I can do to see my drives under Standard CMOS Features, is to change this option to DISABLED?

    Yes, when AHCI is enabled

    Yes.

    I use AHCI and I know my drives disappear from the standard CMOS listing when it's enabled. If I were to switch back to a Non AHCI and/or Raid setting ie the standard Bios defaults, the drives will reappear again.
    That's the way the Gigabyte bios appears to work.
