    sata drivers


    Hi.

    I have the AMD SATA drivers installed for the motherboard in my signature and was wondering if SATA should show or not next to the hard drive names? The AMD Sata driver is listed in device manager but I'm not sure if the drives are running in SATA mode ?

    Please could someone advise

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Further to my initial post, I wanted to attach a picture showing the AMD driver listed in device manager. Could someone advise if the drivers appear to have installed okay?


    Thanks,

    Drivers are installed. You can set the working mode in BIOS (IDE, AHCI, RAID).
