Asus Sabertooth P67 and SATA 6Gb/s - Page 2

post #11 of 14
JMicron Ports - Only eSata - they are the two eSATA ports on the I/O panel of the MB - the red port is a standard eSATA port, and the green is an eSATAp (power over eSATA).
OptionRom - is not the display directly - the OptionRom causes the device to display it's status (an OptionRom is called by the BIOS during POST). If you turn the OptionRom off, the device will not function. However, if you simply wish to turn the POST display message off, if the device is ENABLED, the "Display OptionRom in POST" option will be available. Disable that to remove the post message.

That's great to know. Where do you find this information? I don't think it's in the manual (even though I haven't read it thoroughly at all).

NP - a lot of it is just from experience - I build a lot of PC's, and read a lot of tech papers and user manuals (to answer client questions as well as increasing my knowledge)

However, most MB manufacturers are really good at pointing out what everything does in the user manual - the info on the intended purpose of the JMicron ports in on page "X" of the manual (the introduction part, under the Storage heading). About the OptionRom, I just knew what it was, and the (not so good) explanation of the BIOS options are on page 3-20 and 3-21 of the manual.

Just glad I could help

Yeah, some of the settings are explained well because they are simple but others are not explained at all. If I want to know what some setting like OptionRom does, I can't find it explained in the manual. It just says "use this to enabled" or "use that to disable" but what the item does, isn't explained at all. For example it doesn't tell you that the controller won't work if you disable the option. It would be nice if stuff like this was explained in the manual or on their website.

Anyway, thanks for your help! Much appreciated! +rep
