    Please wait. This will take few seconds.

    If your Gigabyte BIOS hangs at this message after you change to AHCI mode, then this solution worked for me


    1) take a system backup (including system image) of your boot O.S. with windows backup
    2) create a system repair disk (DVD) with windows backup
    3) reformat (quick) then delete the partitions on your boot drive (not sure if this is necessary)
    4) boot to the repair dvd, follow instructions to restore latest system image
    5) reboot, change BIOS settings to AHCI, reboot and all should be just fine.

    For some reason the 1.20E AHCI BIOS just does not like to go past a disk that has a win 7 x64 IDE operating system on it, and restoring the image to the same drive seems to fix the problem.

    Maybe a dumb question, but how do I reformat the drive (to ntfs)?

    Thanks ...

    Vista or Windows 7 will allow you to format when you are installing. When you get to choose the disk to install to, click advanced options and you will see formatting as a choice

    My problem is as that for some reason my sytem wont load an operating system, when i go into the bios and select the HD as first boot, then CDROM as second. So far it keeps going and says that I need to insert a boot disc. Also the only way it has booted windows has been with the windows cd in the CDROM. I have tried to go into and repair my start up boot, but it wont do it. Also for some reason its detecting my Ram as 1333 instead of 1600. Please help me thank you.

    Hi, its been a while and I'm still having the same problem, I have tried everything here but stil same problem.
    Since nothing was working I decided that maybe it was a faulty installation so i went ahead and reinstalled Windows Vista Ultimate. These are the steps I took:

    First- I made sure that the IDE cable on my IDE hard drive is connected properly, I checked the Jumper setting to make sure that its on Master for the Hard drive, even made sure that its in the master position on the cable.

    Second-I went into the bios and loaded factory settings, only thing I changed in there was to set Cd-rom as first boot, disable startup logo.

    Third- I went ahead put Windows cd and proceeded w/ installation, I deleted previous partition and formated the master harddrive. Had Cd-rom as master until windows completed the installation.

    Fourth- I went back to my bios and changed the boot startup to my Master Hard drive first, then Cd-rom second, I also made sure the my hard drive was in 1st slot of HD priorities. The startup continued forward till the same problem appeared. It said "Loading operating system...." then goes to "Boot from CD/DVD:...." and it will just stay there and not startup, I left the computer for 10minutes and nothing changed. So I restarted the computer, went into bios and changed the boot sequence to Cd-Rom first and Master HD second, and the computer will only load windows if I leave the windows cd in the CD-ROm.

    Please help me.

    Please show me images of your hard disk boot priority page, and your Advanced BIOS features pages

    You may need to only have one device on your IDE cable, well I mean no hard drive and CD mix, you can have two hard drives or two CD drives but I often see issues when using one of each on IDE.

    You might have to get a SATA CD/DVD Drive, or a SATA Hard Drive

    How do i get images of the hard disk boot priority page, and advance bios page, also the cd-rom is Sata and not ide, i only have 1 hard drive and its IDE no other hard drive attached. Thanks for all this, and yeah i was thinking that i might have to get an sata hard drive :( which is bad since right now my budget is tight since i had just bought these items to built the computer this april 27, 2010

    You would need to use a camera.

    OK, thanks for clearing up the IDE stuff. So, you are sure windows fully installed then right, and you just need help getting the boot order sorted now so windows will boot right? Just checking to be sure I have the issue clear.

    If so plug your SATA CD/DVD drive into SATAII_5, and put your CD on the end of the IDE cable with either CS or Master selected on the jumper.

    Then make sure these settings are set as follows

    Integrated Peripherals

    OnChip IDE Channel ................. Enabled
    OnChip SATA Controller ............. Enabled
    OnChip SATA Type ................... Native IDE

    OnChip SATA Port4/5 Type ........... IDE or As SATA Type


    Then go into Hard Disk Boot Priority page in the Advanced BIOS Features page and move your hard drive by name to the top of that list

    You only have 1 ide channel. An IDE ribbon is usually 40pin 40wire ATA33/66 or a 40pin 80 wire ATA66/100/133
    Your HDD is a ATA/100 or ATA-6/ATAPI-6
    Which Ribbon are you using the 80wire ATA/100 or the 40wire ATA/33?
    Did you try repeatedly pressing F12 at the initial memory count, and try selecting the hard drive? This will give you your boot options. If you get no boot device it could be the hard drive.
    Did you go to advanced bios feature and to Hard Disk Boot Priority [Press Enter] and see if your hard drive is listed here? If not it could be the wrong jumper, ribbon or it could be damaged.
    Sometimes you can damage a drive trying to run 2 drives at different recommended data rates on the same ribbon, or useing the wrong ribbon, or jumper setting for the ribbon.
    Personally I would get a SATAII HDD. It is very possible the ATA/100 HDD you have now is damaged.

    Default Motherboard LED lights

    OK, not sure if this is a problem or not, but if I use Optimized Defaults in the BIOS, I get no LED lights on my motherboard. However, If I set the BIOS to the ďcorrectĒ settings for my equipment, i.e. enable XMP for my RAM, or manually set the RAMís timings and Voltage, Leave the CPU multi @ 21 so my CPU is running at its default 2.80GHz settings and in general leave everything else at default setting, I get one green LED for the RAM, and one for the CPU.

    Attachment 2492

    The system isnít currently overclocked and I donít think itís a heating issue because these lights come immediately after system startup.

    Do I have a problem or is this normal?

    System specs in my sig, Thanks.

    That is normal, most of the LED's are indicative of higher voltages or speeds so if they are off then nothing is higher than stock.

    C1E and EIST will also disable a few too if disabled, all normal.

    Hmmm....perhaps I'm missing something? If My CPU is running at stock speeds (2.80) and my memory is running at it's "rated" speed - 8-8-8-24-1 and Voltage - 1.65 (set @ 1.640). That seems "stock" to me; Yet the LED's are on???
