Go into Device Manager, IDE ATA controllers and select properties for the channel (primary or secondary) and select the "Advanced settings" tab. There you can select PIO or DMA if availible. On some Intel boards you need to install the Intel driver to get access to DMA transfers (which do have a great impact on performance).
