This is a rather long story: A friend of mine (who owns a computer store) got a bunch of Gigabyte GA-7VM400M mobos at a good price, so I picked one up for my new computer. However, the onboard sound was broken. He only had one board left, so I installed that. However, when I flashed the BIOS (bad idea), the motherboard now fails to recognize the IDE channels. I have a feeling that this is because of the fact that it has 2 SATA ports. However, it won't accept a BIOS flash for the motherboard that it looks exactly like (and has the same features as). It looks like the GA-7VM400M Thus, I cannot use my computer. Any ideas on how to repair this? Gigabyte tech support doesn't list a phone number, and I don't trust that they'll email me back promptly. Any ideas?
