Dear all,

I initially installed my system by starting with the XP system (I didnt do the setup sata in progress) and then installed the gigabyte sata drivers in the OS. I had all kinds of problems trying to remove the sata drivers so I could burn and in the end i reinstalled.

I havent installed the gigabyte drivers at all (and I didnt do the setup thing during the xp install).

So is my drive running much slower than it could? (7.2k SATA Western Digital).

Also can someone tell me how to enable SMART? I cant see any options in the bios and there is no information in the manual

Please help!

Warny

Are you using a raid setup?

SMART is not supported by all HDD's and the SMART option is somewhere in the bios but i dont remember where.
