Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

From Manual page 4-4:

Select Serial ATA for SATA or select Auto (Native Mode) for ATA. The options are:
Serial ATA and
Serial ATA (SATA) RAID Enable (C2SBA+II Only)
Select Enable to enable Serial ATA RAID Functions. (For the Windows OS
environment, use the RAID driver if this feature is set to Enabled. When this item
is set to Enabled, the item: "ICH RAID Code Base" will be available for you to select
either Intel or Adaptec Host RAID firmware. If this item is set to Disabled, the item-
SATA AHCI Enable will be available.) The options are Enabled and Disabled.
Select Enabled to use the Serial ATA Advanced Host Interfacing. This feature is
available when the Windows XP OS, the SPI BIOS Chip, and the IAA Driver are
installed in the system. (Take caution when using this function. This feature is for
advanced programmers only. The options are Enabled and Disabled.)

Try Native Mode: SATA, RAID Enable: Disabled, AHCI Enable: Enabled
