But yours may be slower? You should be using XMP programmed memory if you want to use those settings, otherwise disable it and enter your own settings. Your board may not even support AHCI, but many boards made within the past three years do. Wed Dec 14, 5: Previous 1 2 template Next. I dont know why they disabled both by default in the bios.

Micron, and you can use the Direct from J. I have this motherboard, and not such a recent kernel.

Ahdi want to make sure that there won’t be any issues with our old motherboards and that I’m ahcl of any special procedures ahead of time. I’m paranoid given how old the boards are, and I’m essentially a total noob about this technology. After it detects it says “This drive is controlled by the raid bios” its just like saying “i just wasted 4 minutes of you time for nothing! Login or Sign Up.

Windows does not need a re-install every now and again. If you’re doing a new install, set AHCI first. As far as incompatibility goes, I doubt you’d have a problem with an Intel board. So that may be what is causing your issue, or it may not be?

Micron drivers if you like. As for eppahxi might be different, but still selecting profile 1 in the bios shouldnt disable the cpu fan speed control you dont even need to reboot to see it put it to auto or enabled then go back and change the xmp profile to profile1 and then go back to the cpu section el45-ds3l cpu fan control with be ep54-ds3l to disabled.

I also just had a dfi bloodiron p45 chipset board and they worked fine on that system and that board is nearly identical to this one besides they removed the ahci bios in raid mode.

Restore points do more than just allow a rollback of the system, they also offer previous files. But if they don’t make it faster or something im going to ep455-ds3l to i cant live with a 4 minute boot up time. Wed Dec 14, 5: When is Linux going to catch up to the 21st century?


Since my dad’s mobo is a bit newer, I’m assuming his will too. I dont know why they disabled both by default in the bios.

That’s the only real BIOS setting you need to change.

It is ok to use, I used to run Vista from it To Mod or Not to mod is what you have to decide it looks like? So, best is to disable AHCI and use 2.
