* 4. DETERMINING THE SYSTEM MODE
************************************************************

To use this readme effectively, you will need to know what
mode your system is in. The easiest way to determine the
mode is to identify how the Serial ATA controller is
presented within the Device Manager. The following
procedure will guide you through determining the mode.

1. On the Start menu, select Control Panel.

2. Open on the 'System' applet (you may first
have to select 'Switch to Classic View').

3. Select the 'Hardware' tab.

4. Select the 'Device Manager' button.

5. From the Device Manager, look for an entry named
'SCSI/RAID Controllers'.
If this entry is present, expand it and look for one of
the following controllers:

- 'Asmedia 1x6x SATA Controller'
If the Controller above is present, no further action
is required.

- If neither of the controllers above are shown, then
the system is not running in RAID mode and you should
continue with step 6 below.

6. From the Device Manager, look for an entry named
'Storage controllers'.
If this entry is present, expand it and look for one of
the following controllers:

- 'Asmedia 1x6x SATA Controller'
If the Controller above is present, no further action
is required.

- If this controller is not present, then your system
is not in AHCI mode. No other modes are supported by
the Asmedia 1x6x SATA Host Controller Drive software and you
should continue with step 7 below.

7. Your system does not appear to be running in RAID or
AHCI mode. If you feel that your system is running in
RAID or AHCI mode and you do not see any of the
controllers listed above, you may choose to contact
your system manufacturer or place of purchase for
assistance.
