    Unhappy SSD disappear issue after Z68M-ITX/HT new v2.3 BIOS upgraded

    Recently, I upgraded Z68M-ITX/HT new v2.3 BIOS from v1.2. The system seem happen very unstable and frozen after power on few hours.
    After detail step by step observation, I found the system frozen was due to SSD HD disappear from system suddendly. The SSD HD disapperence will catch by BIOS after re-power on. I think SSD HD shouldn't has any problem because I had tried two SSD HDs and got same issue. Now, I use external eSATA HD for system boot and didn't connect any HD in motherboard. System is very stable and no frozen issue. Have anybody get same issue with me? what's wrong for new BIOS?
    PS: my system is Win7 x64, SSD HD is crucial M4 64GB, connect SATA3 plug in motherboard. I have try to downgrade BIOS to original v1.2 version but system will appear some message "v2.x FW not found.." while power on and still got frozen issue after few hours.

    If you are running a Sandy Bridge CPU and updated your BIOS to the newer BIOS for Ivy Bridge then you cannot flash a downgrade and your only option would be to replace the CMOS chip. You could try a FULL CMOS reset by following the steps in your manual to remove the CMOS battery and move the jumper switch but if that does not work then it sounds like your only option will be to replace the CMOS chip...
    Good Luck

    thanks for suggestion. I may try it but I am careful if it's issue and possible solution for new BIOS version. I am planning to use tranditional HD for clarification if issue on SSD HD only.

    update new finding and issue was fix.
    1. tranditional HD didn't get HD disappear issue. It result from the compatiable issue between new BIOS and SSD HD.
    2. This issue was fix after I upgraded M4 SSD firmware version from 009 to 00F.
