    Default cannot find sata/ide cntl mode in BIOS- GA-EP45-DS3

    The only entry on the Intergarated Pheripherals page Of the BIOS there is onboard IDE controller but there is no entry for onboard SATA/IDE device and onboard SATA/IDE ctrl mode

    The default setting is to configure SATA devices in IDE mode. The setting is probably called SATA RAID/AHCI mode, if it's set to disabled then IDE mode is being used.

    thankyou for your post

    I think you may have help me to solve my problem
    there are two headings on this page:

    SATA achi mode
    and
    SATA port 0-3 native mode

    if i enable these two and then disable SATA devices in IDE mode. then I think I should be ok?

    If you load the setup defaults you will be fine, setup defaults from GB always configure SATA devices as IDE.

    But I think what you said should work, but you'd have to be more clear about how the options are called exactly and what settings are available for me to be 100% sure (different boards often have different names for the same thing, or similar names for different things).

    Where do you have your SATA Hard drive connected?

    It should be on SATA2_0 yellow, then the top two settings are for that controller, and you have them correctly set for IDE mode.

    You can enable Native mode if you want
