(1 star) Support SUCKS!

By: pstum1
PEX2IDE Controller would not allow Win10 x64 to boot. Nothing in the docs or on the website - until I saw another user's comments about Win7. That prompted me to go into BIOS and turn off disk drive AHCI. Bingo! The system now boots and can see the IDE drive (ZIP100).

(5 stars) It works fine, but

By: JQ5530
My review on Amazon To enable my trusty Panasonic DVD-Ram to run on my new all-SATA Gigabyte board, I considered an expansion card as a possible solution for my problem. The card used was a StarTech PCI-Express IDE Adaptor Card (PEX2IDE). However, it didn't worked straight out of the box (possibly, because of the extremely basic instructions supplied). After I installed the card, my computer wouldn't boot (I couldn't even access the bios!). It informed me that it couldn't find a bootable disk. The StarTech card has its own bios and is, probably, designed to re-use IDE hard drives (for booting purposes?). Anyway, I pulled out the card and searched my Gigabyte bios for some setting to change. I did see one setting that looked promising under "Bios features": PCI Rom Priority. My bios was set as "EFI Compatibility Rom" so I reset it for "Legacy Rom". After that change, the whole system worked fine. ------------------------ UPDATE --------------------------------- Recently installed Windows 7 64-bit in a dual-boot system. Ran into the infamous "The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, windows can only be installed to GPT disks". I tried to get into the motherboard's bios without pulling out the StarTech card: when the bios splash-screen appeared, I tapped the 'delete' key on a regular basis (about once every 2 seconds). Nothing, but I kept hitting the key anyway. The JMicron screen appeared for a few seconds, with the usual "press any key to continue" (it'll continue without pressing any key!). I kept tapping 'delete' throughout this sequence, and, then, the bios splash-screen appeared once again, briefly. Suddenly, I was in the motherboard's bios, and I made a change to the way my DVD drive was listed: I changed it from an 'UEFI Optical Drive' to a plain 'SATA Optical Drive'. Since then, I've changed the "PCI Rom Priority" back to its original setting and all is well: Windows 7 installed successfully & my Panasonic DVD now burns disks. Still don't know what went wrong in the first place!? ---------------------------------------------------------------- I gave 5 stars for this adapter, but it really merits 4.5 stars because of the pathetic set of instructions (forget StarTech's website!)
