(5 stars) It works fine, but

By:
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!)
