I can boot and go to the bios fine! However the bios dosen't show any of the sata ports as activated, despite both my dvd drive and my hard drive being sata. Also, I cant open my dvd tray to boot from a disk! did I plug something wrong? Or is their something I can do in the bios to correct this problem. Any advice, Thanks! Also, My phenom 2 x6 is showing up as being only a quad core, How do I flash the bios for a 6 core? And should I wait untill installing linux to do that?
