I have purchased a MSI P965 Neo F motherboard.


I have flashed the bios to the lastest 1.18 revision.

If you look at this board, you'll find it has 5 SATA ports.

- 1 SATAII port by JMicron JMB361.
- 4 SATAII ports by ICH8.


1.) The machine only appears to be able to boot from the 1 jmicron sata port.
2.) within the bios any disks plugged into the board on the other 4 ports show up as "ide" disks, this could be wording or this could be some cheap bus trick
