SATA 1-6

While entering Setup, the BIOS automatically detects the presence of Serial ATA 

devices. There is a separate sub-menu for each SATA device. Select a device item 

then press <Enter> to display the 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 

N/A if no IDE device is installed in the system.

LBA/Large Mode [Auto]

Enables or disables the LBA mode. Setting to [Auto] enables the LBA mode if the 

device supports this mode, and if the device was not previously formatted with LBA 

mode disabled. Configuration options: [Disabled] [Auto]
