Hi list- I'm running FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE (cvsuped and built yesterday) on Asus P5KPL-VM with Maxtor STM3250310AS (250GB) for some reason being recognized as SATA150. According to P5KPL-VM specs (http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=563&l4=0&model=1772&modelmenu=2) it does support 3Gb/s, so does STM3250310AS (http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/disc/manuals/maxtor/100451230c.pdf). Maxtor hard drive came with jumper but removing it didn't help -- I still see SATA150 in dmesg output. I also updated Asus BIOS to the latest version and replaced SATA cables -- none of this helped.
Here is more detailed information: %dmesg | grep SATA atapci1: <Intel ICH7 SATA300 controller> port 0xc400-0xc407,0xc080-0xc083,0xc000-0xc007,0xbc00-0xbc03,0xb880-0xb88f irq 19 at device 31.2 on pci0 ad4: 238475MB <MAXTOR STM3250310AS 3.AAC> at ata2-master SATA150 %atacontrol cap ad4 Protocol Serial ATA II device model MAXTOR STM3250310AS serial number 9RY1LHWX firmware revision 3.AAC cylinders 16383 heads 16 sectors/track 63 lba supported 268435455 sectors lba48 supported 488397168 sectors dma supported overlap not supported Feature Support Enable Value Vendor write cache yes yes read ahead yes yes Native Command Queuing (NCQ) yes - 31/0x1F Tagged Command Queuing (TCQ) no no 31/0x1F SMART yes yes microcode download yes yes security yes no power management yes yes advanced power management no no 65278/0xFEFE automatic acoustic management no no 0/0x00 208/0xD0 %pciconf -lv [EMAIL PROTECTED]:0:31:2: class=0x01018f card=0x81791043 chip=0x27c08086 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Intel Corporation' device = '82801GB/GR/GH (ICH7 Family) Serial ATA Storage Controller' class = mass storage subclass = ATA There were couple of similar threads and one guy reported that he was able to get SATA300 by playing with AHCI settings in BIOS, but I don't really see anything related to AHCI in my BIOS. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
