A few months ago I asked MSI about the diffrence between 1.xx and 3.xx and
got this response:
" Bios V3.XX is for windows XP.Bios V1.xx is for windows Vista.The
differences between these two version BIOS are not only AHCI,but also
SLP(system lock preinstallation,and others.So I advise you to use the right
BIOS version. "
I really didn't understand what SLP is and what 'others' mean, but I guess
that if somone wants to use SATA, then 1.xx is the safer way (but that
doesn't belong to this bug).
About SLP - does anyone here know what that means ? or is it related to this
