Hi, I have an ASUS P5A rev. 1.04 mobo, with award bios (sorry, can't give ID yet...) v4.51 and ALI Aladin V 1541 chipset with 1543c IDE-controller.
I'm planning to upgrade the bios, because I want to install my Seagate 40GB harddisk, but the bios has the well-known 33,8GB-limit.
I was wondering about something else though. The harddisk supports UDMA 5, but the manual of the mobo says that only UDMA mode 2 is supported.
Will this cause any problems if I install the disk?
Will the mobo support higher UDMA-modes after bios upgrade?
Should I lower the UDMA-mode of the harddrive to avoid problems? (there's a tool for it if I can remember correctly)
