Hi!
I am new to any changes on hardware, but i bought a SATAII hard disc and my motherboard Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 doesn't support SATAII and disc doesn't have any jumper so i have to try to enable it.
But I don't know where to seek for this place with nvidia picture so i ask you for some help about this
Here is a picture:


Or is this on the other side of motherboard

I really need to solve this out or my brand new WD500GB is useless :(

I also have a GA-K8NF-9 rev1.x and managed to do the Mod succesfuly :) (Thank you W1zzard & S3phy !!!)
Only problem is that bios can't detect the SATA II hdd if i have an IDE hdd atached..
Does anyone knows a solution to this? (except the obvious removel of the IDE hdd..)

Thanks in advance!
