Quanta windmill board 2

I got another board but it appears to not be working that well. I also got a noctua fan controller which is working great. However, after writing the bios chip using the ch341a chip I bought off ebay, the sata connectors are not working. I am able to boot an operating system fine from the usb port, I just cannot access the sata connectors well.

The next course of action is updating the bios using the freedos updater. If the sata connection problem is not fixed after that, I may have to buy a pcie raid card to avoid using the onboard sata controller.

Unfortunately, the situation only deteriorated with the bios chip. It lost all ability to post. I am afraid I will have to buy another windmill board from the seller.
