View Full Version : Question about ATA 100 and Asus A7M266

Ok.. I have an ATA100 drive. Do I need to do anything special or install any special drivers to get it to run at ATA 100 with this motherboard? I've always just plugged the darn drive in and never installed any drivers. I heard that this might not work to get the benefits of ATA 100. Also how do i know if I have an ATA100 cable. Is there a visual difference?

Your board will ship with the appropriate ATA100 cables. You do not need any specific drivers for this to operate at spec. Just be sure to d&I the latest VIA 4 in 1 drivers. This board only uses 3 of the 4. Do not install the VIA AGP drivers, install the AMD miniport.
