Thank you for responding, still no-go
All 6 on-board SATA ports for my MoBo are AMD. The JMicron is for the eSATA & PATA ports. I tried [Run as Admin] but am still stuck on 1.2 Rev. I updated the BIOS just because it was Very overdue, and same.
I noticed they are set to IDE, not AHCI, in BIOS. Would that make the difference? I am not sure what difference it makes other than being able to boot from Optical drives on some ports when set one way vs the other. I know just about enough technically to get my self in over my head. Well, thanks for any insight you may have.
By the way, AHCI is on (set to value=0) in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci.
