Hi Community,

Will Intel Desktop Board D865GBF Support SATA II Hard Drive ? I have a Samsung 320GB SATA Hard drive which is SATA II (3.0Gb/S) Specification . As the Motherboard Specification the mainboard is SATA 1 (1.5Gb/S) . http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15207/eng/D865GBF_D865GLC_TechProdSpec.pdf http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15207/eng/D865GBF_D865GLC_TechProdSpec.pdf

Will this mainboard's BIOS take/show that Hard drive without controlling Hard drive's Speed or Jumpering to 1.5 Gb/s ?

Waiting for your reply .........

Hi neon,

Your MB will run revert the disk speed to SATA I, providing that you connect your HDD using the SATA connection & not the IDE which will run slower.

The connection's Max speed is 1.5Gb/s

It's a very old MB, count your blessings that it's still working
