Hi all,


I got a question:

My motherboard gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2C does support SATA 300 my Hardware is
SATA 300 but FreeBSD says it is SATA-150

Config: Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 2.66Ghz 2x1GB Kingston DDR2-533 at 667mhz


>From dmesg:

atapci1: <Intel ICH7 SATA300 controller> port
0xd400-0xd407,0xd800-0xd803,0xdc00-0xdc07,0xe000-0xe003,0xe400-0xe40f irq 19
at device 31.2 on pci0

ad7: 476940MB <MAXTOR STM3500320AS MX15> at ata3-slave SATA150


[root at gw ~]# uname -a

FreeBSD gw.class.local 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #5: Sun May 25 00:52:16
UTC 2008     root at gw.class.local:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/gw  i386

The funny thing is. If I start the freebsd installer CD on my Desktop
machine (Asus Maximus Formula Mobo ICH9R) FreeBSD also detects my harddrives
as SATA-150


On Windows XP running Everest both motherboard see the harddrives as


And I so stupid and I'm missing something or I'm so Stupid to setup FreeBSD?
