Hi all,

Just checked out a new delivery of sata-drives I bought recently. They are all
jumpered to clip at a 1,5GB/s transfer rate. When jumpers removed it's said to
support 3GB/s transfer rate.

Can win2k3 server support this speed at all? Or is it more a hardware issue? 

I can't imagine why otherwise a harddrive would be crippled from factory, ie
jumpered to not allow faster transfer rates than 1,5GB/s.
