yes update bios to latest firmware version.
sata2 ports are the problem. sata port=chipset
make sure you have sata devices plugged into sata3 ports on motherboard.
The white intel sata port should be used for ssd and hdd therefore intel rapid storage driver should be installed.
I use marvell sata port for dvd drive without specific driver (default windows).
in SimpleTech's original post i think its under SATA.
in windows control panel/device manager (screenshot)
That means what's highlighted in yellow is what contains the chipset? i.e if you could look at the driver like other devices it would say P67?
