All drivers seem to be installed correctly but the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon does not appear on my taskbar and hot-plugging functions on the HDD settings are grayed out. Wonder if JMicron has updated drivers for the chip, or if I should stick with what Gigabyte has on their website. I suppose I’ll have to try the Jmicron controller, returning the board isn’t really an option as I need on with a serial and parallel port, and there aren’t that many around nowadays. Ive been trying to get the answer to this also. Here is the link:

Final configuration PATA not enabled because turning it on causes a hang during boot. It is reproduced below with his permission. I suppose I’ll hhot to try the Jmicron controller, returning the board isn’t really an option as I need on with a serial and parallel port, and there aren’t that many around nowadays. You can “workaround” this by uninstalling appropriate disk drive in device manager, before pulling it out.

The hang does not occur if the option ROM is skipped by setting 0xdf[6], so I use 0xa1 to be closer to what Linux does, although I notice no other differences between 0xf1 and 0xa1.

I tried modifying the option ROM to also configure register 0x to this value, but had many problems booting.

Please work with the latest bios and share it.

Super User works best with JavaScript enabled. So I ask you: Supports hot plugging of devices Supports staggered spin ups of multiple hard drives at boot time However, in the real world the performance difference isn’t huge. Pllug for your answers. Now do the following: Those three bytes used to be a function call to a function that would read a byte from the PCI configuration space register diand return the result in cl.

This changes mov cl, 0x02 to mov cl, 0x And also shows on Safely Remove interface. The poster recommends using a 3rd-party software called HotSwap original linkbroken to enable this functionality.

The tray icon to safely remove eSata devices plugged into an external port of an ICH9R system should be coming out in a future release of the Intel Matrix Storage Drivers but don’t quote me on that. I’m using the latest BIOS on my motherboard, as well. I can use the wizard to safely remove it, but reconnecting doesn’t do anything unless I reboot.

Will this method damage the jmicfon configuration and so doing the o. I’m seriously considering returning the board which is a shame coz apart from the hot-plug issues it’s a fantastic piece of gear. A JMicron-specific driver is available only for Windows.



I want to create an AHCI patched verson of 1. Only modifying register df[1: What am I missing? Copy the file IaStor. It seems like bits [1: These configuration registers seem to control the hardware directly.


I used the newest version of the option ROM 1. If so, I would start with the first patched ROM the one that sets df[1: Also tried many different driver revisions. not

pluy I don’t know if you guys have arrived at this realization yet or not, but if not, just fyi: I think what you want is to change b1 02 to b1 Just to clear things – hardware wise hotplug is present since at least ich7r, and iirc since ich6r.
