Primary IDE Master/Slave and SATA 1~6

While entering Setup, the BIOS automatically detects the presence of IDE/SATA devices. 

There is a separate submenu for each IDE/SATA device. Select a device item then press 

<Enter> to display the IDE/SATA device information.

The BIOS automatically detects the values opposite the dimmed items (Device, Vendor, Size, 

LBA Mode, Block Mode, PIO Mode, Async DMA, Ultra DMA, and SMART monitoring). These 

values are not user-configurable. These items show Not Detected if no IDE/SATA device is 

installed in the system.

Refer to section “2.2.1 BIOS menu screen” for information on the menu screen items and 

how to navigate through them.
