force 3 on nvidia chipset hangs post
After deciding to upgrade (avoiding corsair and sandfarce) I decided to put my old force 3 120gb in my sons machine which has a ecs geforce6100pm_m2 v7 motherboard in it. I have the latest (2010) bios but the drive sometimes hangs post. The motherboard only has sata2 and the drive is recognized as sata1.5 (I understand that this is a known issue, without a solution) it will not allow me to install vista or copy the vista install from the old disk.
If I were to update the firmware from 1.3.3 to 5.02(?) is this likely to solve the issue? or would it make sense to downgrade to 1.3.2 as that appears to disable AHCI, which may be the problem??
