Hi,I would like to share with you my short experience with this mobo:
WinNT4 boots with latest UNIATA 0.39j2 that supports new ICH8-10 released by BW, thanks to him.
My further testing was aimed to DOS and Win98.
DOS is OK, it sees SATA drives as standard IDE on legacy ports/IRQ. Except the PATA controller
Jmicron - I had to use special driver gcdrom.sys to be able to use PATA CD/DVD drivers.
I tested that ICH10 IDE was much slower than ICH7 (15MB/s vs 35MB/s).
For Win98 I did some INF file modding (I will upload it for other testers soon) and it booted
and detected most of HW resources but there are 3 problems:
1) USB2.0 doesn't work (I got 1.1 slow speed) because of problem on USB 2.0 root hub in device manager (I use NUSB 3.3 cz)
2) HDD works in some compatability extreme slow mode and I cannot see drives in device manager.
There are SATA controller and standard dualport PCI dual fifo controller marked /!\. I messed
aroud with it but I couldn't fix it.
3) Jmicron controller is totally missing, PATA optical drives are inacessible.
Before I can do more testing the mobo has died (fall into endless restarting loop, clear cmos didn't helped, replacing cpu/ram, nothing..)
and I RMA it and changed it by another mobo with P41+ICH7 for better compatability.
Did anybody else succeed with ICH8/9/10?
did your mobo workng on ide?
i using h55 using sata(IDE mode) @ \!/ <-
& can't using usb 2.0
