Motherboard doesn't enable S.M.A.R.T support
Posted on 2003-11-03
I have a Gigabyte K7N400-PRO2 (nForce 2) MB with AMD 2700+ XP, Maxtor 60 GB HD (7200RPM) with S.M.A.R.T support and another Maxtor 120 GB 8MB Buffer (7200RPM) with S.M.A.R.T support.
I couldn't find in the manual or in the BIOS menus anything rgd the S.M.A.R.T support - but when the PC is booting I can see the message S.M.A.R.T support is disabled. (this message appears twice, one per HD)
These HD's where installed on an olde PC (MSI nForce1) with AMD 1700XP + and the S.M.A.R.T worked fine there.
Can anyone help me on how to enable this ?
FYI - this MB has IDE Raid and SATA Raid as well (both disabled).
