Many thanks for your replies gents, what else could I say but WTF, you mean these dickheads would ship mobos plagued by this issue and then, when they saw it fit, released some "patch"? I can't believe it, really, is this supposed to be a joke?! I am so pissed off I could spit nails, here is who I am to say thanks to for losing all my data: ABIT and their crap. Now, lemme guess, I'll bet my ass in order to update that BIOS I'm gonna need Windows and one some half-assed utility they provide, isn't it?
Sorry gents but I am simply mad at these boneheads. Unbelievable, I paid 200€ back then for this mobo and what I ended up with is a piece of trash which can't even copy data across two sata disks properly. I'd better end my rant here before i get banned. One more entry to add to my hardware manufacturers blacklist: ABIT. Regards, andre *shakes head*
