Question (Q&A-31|140): I am a K8Upgrade-VM800 / P4VM8 / 775VM8 / P4V88+ / 775V88+ user. I found that a new option "SATA Operation Mode" was added in the latest production BIOS. What is the option for? How should I set it?(5/15/2005)
Answer:The "SATA Operation Mode" provides two choices to install OS on the SATA hard disk.
There are two options for "SATA Operation Mode": RAID (Default) and non-RAID.

a. When choosing "RAID" mode, you have to create a SATA floppy image diskette by the support CD and press "F6" to install SATA driver at the beginning of Windows XP/2000 installation.
If you want to install Windows XP/2000 on the SATA hard disk and also want to use RAID function, please set the option to "RAID".
If you want to install Windows 98SE/Me on the SATA hard disk, please set the option to "RAID".

b. When choosing "non-RAID" mode, it is not necessary to create a SATA floppy image diskette by the support CD nor press "F6" to install SATA driver at the beginning of Windows XP/2000 installation.
It is also convenient for users who do not have floppy drive.

If you want to install Windows XP/2000 on the SATA hard disk but do not want to use RAID function, please set the option to "non-RAID".
