My board has a similar setting, and in their infinite wisdom, Asus decided it should be disabled by default. Obviously Gigabyte is as SMART as Asus (pun intended).

@F5ing,
Long scan?

@essenbe,
Am not really sure what the whole smart thing is? But am guessing it must be imported?

No, it is just an enabled/disabled setting. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why anyone would not want to know if their hard drive is dying.

What are the other choices for OnChip SATA type?

Find another HD Diagnostic extended CD scan recommended for that Samsung HD. The SMART can't really be ignored.

I thought you were going to try a reinstall. AHCI is the optimal setting for reinstall.

Would you prefer to test the HD again with the diagnostics recommended by maker?

Did you get another SMART reading? This can be done from the desktop (in IDE mode) by installing CrystalDiskInfo - Software
