    This resolved my AHCI problems (Vista 64):
    Error message when you start a Windows Vista-based computer after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive: "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE"

    Set bios SATA mode to ahci and it booted straight up. So far, the only difference I see is it takes longer to boot (ahci screen), but resumes much faster from S3.

    I agree AHCI is overrated really and if you are not hot-swapping your drives you are better off using IDE mode if you do not want to setup RAID

    As for the USB device as suggested earlier you will need to disable Legacy USB Storage Detect if your device is giving you issues at bootup as not all USB Devices will be compatible always. You will HAVE to re-enable this setting later if you want to flash from Qflash via a USB Stick though so keep that in mind.

    Disabling this setting only causes the USB Devices not to be scanned at boot time, they will function normally in windows

    It should, let us know what you did, and what happened as a result. Some devices just wont work at all, and some will... that is just the way the ball rolls.

    Disabling that setting helps to at least let some that may not function properly to be able to be left connected but only scanned/active once windows starts

    I had tried this setting in the initial BIOS release that came with the board, to no avail. I must admit I have been running with this setting enabled lately and with the new BIOS's I've been trying I have not set it to disabled. I'll give that a shot and then let you guys know it works or not, apologies for the late reply been moving house and have not had the opportunity to test.

    Thanks for all your input and suggestions. :)

    Well that seemed to do the trick this time around! I'm running BIOS F6d at the moment and can confirm disabling Legacy USB Storage option has allowed the system to complete POST whilst having these aforementioned USB devices connected to the computer. Vnice.

    I'm quite sure this had no effect with the F3 or F4 BIOS, so if anyone else has been following this thread now or in the future make sure to upgrade to the latest BIOS, tweak the setting mentioned by lsdmeasap snd then everything should be fine.

    Thanks again guys, take care.

    Nice to see you are in working order now! Post back anytime

    That setting can be tricky for sure, can cause many odd issues on some boards and not others???
