Chapte 4: BIOS setup

SATA 1~2
While entering Setup, the BIOS automatically detects the presence of SATA 
devices. There is a separate sub-menu for each SATA device. Select a device item 
then press <Enter> to display the IDE 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.
Type [Auto]
Selects the type of IDE drive. Setting to Auto allows automatic selection of the 
appropriate IDE device type. Select CDROM if you are specifically configuring a 
CD-ROM drive. Select ARMD (ATAPI Removable Media Device) if your device 
is either a ZIP, LS-120, or MO drive. Configuration options: [Not Installed] [Auto] 
[CDROM] [ARMD]
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]
Block (Multi-Sector Transfer) M [Auto]
Enables or disables data multi-sectors transfers. When set to Auto, the data 
transfer from and to the device occurs multiple sectors at a time if the device 
supports multi-sector transfer feature. When set to [Disabled], the data transfer 
from and to the device occurs one sector at a time. Configuration options: 
[Disabled] [Auto]
