Windows 7: ALiveNF5-eSATA2+ support Phenom II 940?

02 Sep 2017   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-BIT

The list of support AMD Processors in that motherboard is here:
ASRock > ALiveNF5-eSATA2+

The motherboard does not have a BIOS 2.11 as per ASRock.

Clearly, it does not support any Phenom II and Athlon II processors. The Phenom II 940 has a model name of HDZ940XCGIBOX for retail and HDZ940XCJ4DGI for OEM/Tray.
