Hi folks,

$ sudo lshw | grep sata
Code:
configuration: driver=sata_nv latency=0 maxlatency=1 mingnt=3 module=sata_nv
configuration: driver=sata_nv latency=0 maxlatency=1 mingnt=3 module=sata_nv
configuration: driver=sata_nv latency=0 maxlatency=1 mingnt=3 module=sata_nv

Just bought the captioned HD, factory setting on jumpers:-

Limited to 1.5Gb/s Operation - the 2 jumpers on the right are connected with a bridge-connector.


According to the instruction on the label:-
3 Gb/s Operation - the 4 jumpers should be free standing without connection.


The captioned motherboard can suppor Serial ATA-300. Please advise whether I have to remove the bridge connector. TIA
