    Does anyone know why my hard disk is
    recognised as "Ultra dma mode" instead of "ultra dma
    mode 6" in XP pro?

    Via 4.38

    Thanks to all

    This is a confusing one. With Win2k, the ata66 is not enabled by default. I've seen benchmarks that would suggest the same thing is true of XP.

    Which brings up the question of whether the old ATA registry trick is needed for XP or not.
