    Default GA-EP45-UD3P Orange SATA Ports not booting up Drives

    Everything installed... I put the Boot Drive to the Purple Ports and a DVD Optical Drive to the upper Purple port both works well. Now when I add just 1 drive to the orange slot it does not boot up.. I have the SATA0-3 enabled in f7a BIOS. Any ideas?

    A drive on the orange port gets boot priority, so you have to go into BIOS and set the drive on the purple port back to the first boot device... personally I would put the boot drive on the orange SATA 0 port. The Intel ICH10 is a better controller than the Gigabyte.

    this mobo is quite good.. really fast. I did not expect to even go beyond 3.1 or 3.2 with the q9550.. esp for a newbie like me... i just followed the template.. boom it is 3.61 now.. oh well.. the mod settings work like magic.

    Glad to hear you got it working. I really like my UD3R too, fantastic board, much better than the Biostar Tpower I45 it replaced.
