Chances are where it's probably a butchered AMI BIOS, there will be little luck getting the functionality you are looking for.

evasive, our resident BIOS guy is here less now due to real life stuff.. Best advice I can give, post at, you might receive a speedier response..

Why are you using something that confuses SATA and PATA devices? Your disk is not even connected to the UDMA mode 6 port, it is connected to a SATA2 port that is ATA-300 if you want to botch the standards again. I don't know why HD tune is reporting things like this, maybe time for a newer version...

We hate rut, but we fear change.
System error, strike any user to continue...

Yep, may hard disk is connected to a SATA2 port and the connector is in BIOS on AHCI.
I don't have any PATA (IDE) ports on my mainboard.
HD Tune is quite old and displays a false information.
