That crippled Award BIOS cannot support PS/2. They wanted to save money,
and used small BIOS memory chip. So they removed floppy, IDE, Firewire,
PS/2, and serial protocoll support. Also there is no LPT port, so I can
use only USB printers. That motherboard has 12 SATA connectors (four of
them are for external SATA disks), a lot of PCI slots and USB connectors.
