    Default Blow your Mind - FM2A88X Board

    How about this........The labels for the discs are incorrect in BIOS on the FM2A88X Extreme6+ boards.

    Now THAT was a pretty nutty and frustrating thing to work through.......it was only by LUCK that I figured this out.....

    This after I flashed the newest Rev 1.80 Bios.

    Also there was a WEIRD problem where I had a USB disk plugged in.......and when I removed it, Win7 wouldn't boot........said Bootmgr was missing.

    But Bootmgr is on the C: partition .....not on the USB.....lol....But w/o that USB drive plugged in.....it said it was missing..........go figure.

    What do you mean in saying that? Labels incorrect?

    Sorry, should have provided more detail.......Here ya go.

    My Boot Drive is a Samsung 32G SSD

    I have a couple of other POS Sata drives installed. One of em is a ST1603 something.

    NOW, Unless I have the ST1603 as my second choice after the CD in the boot order menu, it will NOT BOOT, cause it says Bootmgr not found.

    SO, If I have Samsung SSD as choice #2, It will go to the ST1603 drive to try to boot from which has ZIP on it....especially no boot crep....and the other SATA drive ditto.

    And if I have the ST1603 as choice #2 it will boot fine which means it's really going to the Samsung SSD

    SO, the disk labels are wrong........

    And not only that, but it won't even allow that Samsung as choice #3.........even if you set the priorities.......

    And WTH is this UFEI Boot choice anyway???......Is that so it boots directly to Bios?....I think I read something about that.......that it boots too fast to give peeps a chance to hit the Del/F2 key.......lolol....great marketing gimmick

    And look down for the latest USB WEIRDNESS.........lol

    Edited my Siggy

    And even if I pick the Samsung out of F11 choice......it no workie........Have to pick that ST1603......lol.......

    I even tried swapping the SATA ports on the MoBo.........BTW.......which port is recommended for the Boot drive anyway......yeah, I know it makes no difference prolly, but I'm kinda anal about crap like that......would like it to be in the lowest port.....

    And I'd REALLY like my boot drive to be Drive 0 in Win7.......but maybe that's asking for too much

    Grab a screen capture of your "Boot" page and upload it here if you would.

    How to: Insert a usb thumb drive, boot up, and while the BIOS is displaying any screen, hit F12, and a screen grab will be created on the thumb drive.
