I dont know whether the primary and secondary IDE ports are there in the asus m2npv-vm & m2n-mx motherboards.i am having the HDD which has compatibility of connecting through IDE ports...but the recent motherboards are coming with Serial ATA 2.0 ports.that's why i need to make sure that i can use my HDD with the new motherboard after upgrading to asus...
Hi, i have a couple of those boards. they have 2 ide ports on them and 4 serial ports. if youu do get the m2npv-vm, one thing that is weird about it, one faces up from the board and the other lays flat off the edge. also the ports are right next to each other and the polarity (which side you put the ribbon cable stripe on) is opposite each other. so if you don't use a keyed ribbon cable you might hook them up wrong.
Hi, The manual says yes. Specifically, Asus M2NPV-VM has 4 SATA and 2 IDEs, while the M2N-MX has 4 SATA and a single IDE. Manuals for these models are available for download from www.support.asus.com Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.
Yes both boards have IDE the m2npv-vm has two & the m2n-mx has one.
