    Unhappy USB Boot impossible on EP45-DS3R

    Hello,

    Since i bought my new PC with an EP45-DS3R in october, i couldn't boot on USB

    I made my USB key bootable with vista installation file & it works on every other PC...

    But not this one. I also tried to launch a ghost program : Same, works on other PC...

    On this one, it says "invalid partition table"... But works on the others, so why this!?

    Ghost will not work on SATA/AHCI/RAID disks, what version of ghost are you using anyway? If it is newer you could try the Boot CD made from it.

    To Boot from USB I find it easiest to Do the following. First Legacy USB Storage Detect MUST Be enabled in the BIOS, then leave the USB Stick in and reboot (Boot Order does not matter in the BIOS per this method) Then hit F12 at startup to access the Boot Menu. On the Boot Menu Screen choose + Hard Drive and then on the next screen choose your USB Stick by Name

    I'm going to try this again, but i think i did and i couldn't see the name of the drive here... Anyway it always said INVALID PARTITION TABLE!!

    And the ghost is acronis 11, it works with sata, i tested it on other PC!

    Ahh well what was invalid parition table, the disk or the USB Stick?

    Ya, you are right Acronis True Image 11 works with SATA I use it as well. Did you not try just using the CD? That is what I use, might save you some hassle

    Is your other PC you are mentioning SATA As well, just wondered if it is seeing it easier as it is maybe IDE?

    What exact Version of 11 are you using, I know the ones before Build 11.0.8101 did not work well with SATA/AHCI/RAID. So you may need to update or find that version's boot disk

    Well it seems my version is under the one you said, so i need to upgrade... I'll check this! BUT i remember trying the version 12 (or 2009) and it was the same problem!!
    The other PC is Asus EEE 904HD, it should be SATA... PC saw it as IDE sure, in all PC.

    Yes, I tried 12 to backup, it was VERY LONG and not looking well.. So i didn't even let the backup do, just erased and put version 11 again! Anyway, the problem is still here:

    As i said, i have vista installation on my USB key and it worked on MULTIPLE other PC, but still not loading on this one...

    What ports (Color and #) do you have your SATA Drives connected to? And what do you have set in the BIOS Per >>>

    Integrated Peripherals

    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) ............. AHCI
    SATA Port0-3 Native Mode ................................... Enabled (or Disabled, both will work)


    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ............. Enabled
    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ........... IDE
