My Bios Settings
MOBO, ASUS M3A78-EM, installed devices, 1 x sata 11 HD, 1 x floppy, 1x dvd rom, ( IDE), 1 x sata DVD/CD drive, 1 x sata front panel multi port hub.
Iíve been trying to resolve some issues I have with boot times and I donít understand some of my bios settings, could someone advise me please or correct my selections.
1) IDE dvd rom set as master, ( no slave ).
2) SATA 1 = HD.
3) SATA 2 = DVD/CD drive.
4) SATA 3 = multi port hub.
5) Onchip Sata chanel 1 = enabled.
6) Onchip Sata type = Sata, but options for RAID or AHCI.
7) Suppend mode = Auto.
8) ACPI 2.0 support = disabled.
9) acpi-APIC support = enabled.
10) SATA 1 = HD.
11)SATA 2 = DVD/CD drive.
12) Floppy, ( canít see the IDE DVD drive but can see it elsewhere and drive works ).
Please see 1,2,3,4, which drive does gets priority here on boot up, I hopping it's number 3/11, ( same drive ), or do I need to change sequence.
Advance, Internal Graphics
13) AMD 780 HD Audio = Enabled, ( I have no HD devices fitted, I have legacy 97 Audio enabled elsewhere ).
14) Audio Controller = Enabled
15 ) SPDIF outmode setting = SPDIF output, (option to select HDMI).

If you don't have a Hard drive RAID setup you can safely disable the sata chip for RAID.
You can also disable the DVD and floppy from the boot sequence. Just leaving the Hard Drive. That sometimes saves a few seconds. (re-enable them only when you need to boot from disk/dvd etc. They will still work within Windows if disbaled from the boot sequnce)
You can probably enable the ACPI 2.0 safely (advanced power management). However if it does cause issues, just disabled it again. It won't save you any time at boot, but will help with things like Sleep/Hibernate
The AMD 780 HD is an on-board High Definition Audio device. Try setting all options to HD instead of legacy 97
SPDIF is the digital output to things like stereos, surround systems etc. (yellow plug) Not needed if you plug speakers straight into the green/blue speaker jack ports.
