Hy again. So I've updated my BIOS to the version from downloads... 1203 with AHCI... and I can't see any diferences in the BIOS settings... My board works OK, no problems there, but still, there is no true AHCI enabled for ICH9/R chipset on shouthbridge... I wanted to build a hackintosh machine based on this board, and upon installation, I can see clearly that my SATA ports aren't detected, not even port 1 whitch is on JMB363 if I am corect. That's not a problem, because I can always enable it after the instalation... but man...those other SATA ports... they've been killing me for 2-3 days now... I saw a 0401 BIOS posted above... I guess that's the first version released by ASUS, with true AHCI support... as soon as I gen my Flash Pen Drive back, I'll try downgrading to that one using AFUDOS...
camiloml, I guess that you somehow combined the two BIOSes above into one, but if you can share some light on what this new BIOS from downloads should do for AHCI, it would be very appreciated.
Fom what I can tell, the only change in BIOS settings is that, no mather what option I chose in the Main -> Sata Configuration (Disabled, Compatible or Enhanced), I always get IDE as the mode to configure to. I thought that it should let me configure SATA as AHCI there, like the option in Advanced -> Chipset -> Configure JMicron as AHCI. Also there is no speed increase in using the HD's. (EDIT: Sorry about that. Yes, there is a speed increase, and you can see it in copyinng files from one HD to another, about 25-30 MB/s).
I'll give feedback if there are new developments... Chears.
