    Might come off as a silly question but here goes ........

    Have you installed the specific ASMedia SATA3 driver, v1.3.1, from the Z77ex6 download page? The itb Windows drivers(?) won't support PM functions.

    eSata can get complicated. Try this, with the HF2 connected and powered up install the driver I mention above. If by chance you already DO have that specific driver installed currently, uninstall the driver, reboot, and with the HF2 connected and powered (re-)install that driver.

    If on the off chance that doesn't work let me know and I'll fill one of the LaCie Biggest S2S 5 drive PM boxes here and test with my ex6

    Er, um, or whatever vX.X.X ASMedia SATA3 driver is appropriate for your OS on the ex6 download page.

    Sorry, just noticed there are different v's available for different OS's.

    In Windows 7, I have ASMedia 106x SATA Controller 1.3.9.0. In Windows XP, I have 1.3.1.0.

    Again, when I tested one of my hard drives in SATA3_A2, my UEFI did not detect the presence of a drive. When I tested an external drive in the eSATA port, my UEFI did not detect the presence of any drive. Both are shared headers; when one has a drive connected, the other must be disconnected, which I did. The presence of a drive was not detected in either port in Win7 or WinXP. Clearing the CMOS did not solve the problem. SATA3_A2 and eSATA are still non-functional. The other 7 SATA headers work perfectly.
