    Default ASRock B75 Pro3-M & 4TB HDD

    I have a 4TB and 2TB WD green HDDs as internal storage. The problem is my mobo won't boot if it has the 4TB HDD attached.

    My configuration as follows:
    1. ASRock B75 Pro3-M mobo with Ivy Bridge processor plus 4x4GB RAM.
    2. A 250GB WD blue HDD as system drive attached to SATA3_0 port (GPT).
    3. A 64GB SSD as cache drive attached to SATA2_1 port (GPT).
    4. 2TB WD green HDD attached to SATA3_A0 port (GPT NTFS).
    5. 4TB WD green HDD attached to SATA3_A1 port (GPT exFAT).
    6. No optical drive / thumb drive attached.

    Symptom:
    Boot stopped at POST screen with A2 code at bottom right corner (I disabled the boot logo).

    Have done:
    1. Port swapping (no luck).
    2. Disconnected all drive but the 4TB HDD (didn't work).
    3. Disconnected the 4TB HDD only (boot normally).
    4. Hot plugged the 4TB HDD (its content still accessible and no sign of failure / corrupt disk; worked normally as if it is an external drive).
    5. Reboot with the 4TB HDD keep connecting (symptom re-occur).
    6. Reload UEFI default settings and repeat above steps (not help).

    Can somebody help me to figure out what went wrong?

    Thanks in advance,
    Yusron

    What OS/version are you using?

    You mentioned "port swapping", meaning you put the 4TB HDD on one of the Intel SATA II ports at one point, is that right?
