I recently bought a new motherboard, a msi Z77, the $179 one on newegg, and I can't hot swap with my Xion Predator 970 case. Also, when i look at my Sata ports, they are labeled 0,0,1,1,3,5. In the bios RAID is off. And they are all set to IDE instead of ACHI. Help? Quickly.
Please explain what's in IDE mode; in your original post you wrote " In the bios RAID is off. And they are all set to IDE instead of ACHI." Did you just change the ICH10R configuration from IDE to AHCI? If the OS was installed with the controller in IDE mode, the system should crash when you boot it unless you made registry modifications. All ports either are in IDE or in AHCI mode.
In device manager I clicked on all of the Sata ports, they are labeled 0,0,1,1,3,5 . Ill try downloading them and see if that works. And I guess so, I am not sure what the old motherboard settings were but they must have been AHCI
