Pretty much as above but the situation is it's an OEM motherboard in a laptop and I really have no documentation on it since it was never advertised. The HDD that was in their was SATA II but it is modern with an Ivy Bridge cpu (also sold with sandy bridge versions).
Is their a way to check from within Windows? Looking at the mobo there are really no labels on there but some part numbers I might be able to look up. I want to know if it can handle SATA III speeds from an SSD although I guess I could just run a speed test once I install it and that'd let me know.
