I have this Mainboard, which should have 2 SATA connections on it, but there is only one, the other one is empty - I don't know why...
Since a few days the attached SATA Harddisc is not recognized any more, not in Windows and not even in BIOS. I know that I have to set a jumper on it (SAMSUNG harddisc) to limit the disc to 1,5 transfer rate (SATA-1), but this doesn't help anymore - before it worked. So I assume that the SATA connector on the board is broken. I have a Promise SATA Controller which I could install on a PCI slot to circumvent this problem.
But: I already replaced the board in my computer with a Socket 775 board.
What do you think - is it worth to keep this board "for later" (planning to replace a board in another computer which is a little bit older, and which runs Windows Home Server) - or should I throw it away and better buy a cheap 775 board for the WHS?
