    I have the subject motherboard in a Maxtor NAS with an Intel 815e chipset
    which should (according to the Intel docs and the Supermicro manual)
    support ATA/100 on the onboard IDE. However the auto IDE BIOS setting does
    not detect the connected ATA/100 disk drive correctly (tried several) and
    the manual BIOS setting only goes to UDMA4 (ATA/66). Confused, as
    Supermicro's own spec in the manual and web page says it has UDMA5 support,
    but the same manual also shows only a max of UDMA4 in the BIOS setup pages.
    I tried the BIOS update they offer, but no go. Any hints? Thanks for
