    Default Motherboard FM2A85X-ITX BIOS v1.2 and Samsung HD154UI harddrive

    I have a FM2A85X-ITX motherboard, everything is working fine, but whenever I try to boot with any Samsung HD154UI drives plugged in(to either the onboard or an add on sata controller) the machine will not get past its initial BIOS image display, The drives are working fine on other machines. Anyone know what is going on here, so many problems lately and now I have this to deal with this

    BIOS is at current revision and firmware on HHDs are current as well(actually no firmware update on HDDs available) This happens with both ata and ahci

    Their reply

    "K
    yle,

    We do not have newer bios version.

    My Reply

    "Thank you for your speedy reply. I understand the BIOS was updated on Jan 24, 2013 and it is the latest version I got that information from the website and stated this in the form that I submitted, this response doesn't really help my inquiry at all and I have no idea what 'the address below is' as there is nothing but a summary of the information I sent below what was written. I am attempting to inform you that there might be an issue with the BIOS on this motherboard and was checking to see if this is something that could be looked at and possibly fixed quickly, I have a bunch of these boards that were going to go into production today, but it looks like I'll just have to return them and find another company to do business with in the future."

    Enough said.

    The latest version is 1.80 Kyle. If that wasn't a typo just navigate to the "Internet Update" in your EUFI for a stress free update It was released late Feb or early this month
    It doesn't strictly matter what continent you pick. Also you might try calling Tech support.
    The ASR tech told me that w/email they try to answer as many questions as possible with one fits-all response.
    Ergo there is no way to really know what if anything in your inquiry they were referencing.
    Good Luck!

    1.80? Really. Better look again. 1.20 is the latest for his board.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Hi Kyle Gilgan,

    It's great to know the problem was solved.

    Because we don't have the same HDD on our side, I tested Samsung HD080HJ on FM2A85X-ITX and system boot normally.

    If any question later, please kindly let us know.
    Thank you very much!

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD
