face Introduction
eSATTAII Inter
Interface
What is eSATAII?
This motherboard supports eSATAII interface, the external SATAII specification.
eSATAII allows you to enjoy the SATAII function provided by the I/O of your
computer, offering the high speed data transfer rate up to 3.0Gb/s, and the
convenient mobility like USB. eSATAII is equipped with Hot Plug capability that
enables you to exchange drives easily. For example, with eSATAII interface, you
may simply plug your eSATAII hard disk to the eSATAII ports instead of opening
your chassis to exchange your SATAII hard disk. Currently, on the market, the
data transfer rate of USB 2.0 is up to 480Mb/s, and for IEEE 1394 is up to 400Mb/
s. However, eSATAII provides the data transfer rate up to 3000Mb/s, which is
much higher than USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394, and still keeps the convenience of Hot
Plug feature. Therefore, on the basis of the advantageous transfer speed and the
facilitating mobile capability, in the near future, eSATAII will replace USB 2.0 and
IEEE 1394 to be a trend for external interface.

This motherboard adopts ULi M1697 southbridge chipset that supports Serial ATA
(SATA) / Serial ATAII (SATAII) hard disks and RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1,
JBOD, and RAID 5) functions. You may install SATA / SATAII hard disks on this
motherboard for internal storage devices. This section will guide you to install the
SATA / SATAII hard disks.
STEP 1: Install the SATA / SATAII hard disks into the drive bays of your chassis.
STEP 2: Connect the SATA power cable to the SATA / SATAII hard disk.
STEP 3: Connect one end of the SATA data cable to the motherboard’s SATAII
connector.
STEP 4: Connect the other end of the SATA data cable to the SATA / SATAII hard
disk.
1. If you plan to use RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD functions, you
need to install at least 2 SATA / SATAII hard disks. If you plan to use
RAID 5 function, you need to install at least 3 SATA / SATAII hard disks.
If you plan to use RAID 0+1 function, you need to install at least 4 SATA
/ SATAII hard disks. If you install 2 eSATAII devices, then only RAID 0,
RAID 1, or JBOD functions will be enabled.
2. If you plan to use RAID functions on SATA / SATAII, SATA / SATAII HDDs
must be operated in “RAID” mode.
3. “RAID” and “non-RAID” mode are options under “SATA Operation Mode” in
BIOS setup. Please refer to page 41 for details.

939SLI32-eSATA2 motherboard supports Hot Plug and Hot Swap functions
for SATA / SATAII / eSATAII Devices in RAID / AHCI mode. ULi M1697
southbridge chipset provides hardware support for Advanced Host
controller Interface (AHCI), a new programming interface for SATA host
controllers developed thru a joint industry effort. AHCI also provides
usability enhancements such as Hot Plug. AHCI requires appropriate
software support (e.g., an AHCI driver, which is contained in our support
CD).
NOTE
What is Hot Plug Function?
If the SATA / SATAII HDDs are NOT set for RAID configuration, it is called
“Hot Plug” for the action to insert and remove the SATA / SATAII HDDs
while the system is still power-on and in working condition.
However, please note that it cannot perform Hot Plug if the OS has been
installed into the SATA / SATAII HDD.
What is Hot Swap Function?
If SATA / SATAII HDDs are built as RAID1 then it is called “Hot Swap” for
the action to insert and remove the SATA / SATAII HDDs while the system
is still power-on and in working condition.
eSATAII is equipped with Hot Plug capability that enables you to exchange
drives easily. For example, with eSATAII interface, you may simply plug your
eSATAII devices to the eSATAII ports instead of opening your chassis to
exchange your SATAII hard disk.
If you obey “safely remove hardware” mechanism like USB flash drive, you
can enable eSATAII device write cache on the driver by ULi RAID configuration
tools to enhance the eSATAII performance. While keeping write data to disk can
be flush out when removing the eSATAII device.
