    Question GA-MA78G-DS3HP refuses to boot USB devices

    Hi all.
    I have a GA-MA78G-DS3HP.based system with 4GB kingston ram, a 9600 BE CPU, NVIDIA 9500gt GPU, and a Seagate barracuda 1TB master HD.

    Since I purchased the board last December I have not been able to boot from any USB devices :( including flash drives of varying sizes and now a newly purchased 320GB seagate external with linux installed.

    I have gotten it to show under the installed hard disks randomly but it disappears by itself and is never present in the f-12 boot options.

    If anyone here has a similar board and knows a solution plz enlighten me b4 I purchase another board.

    It is very frustrating to have issues like this since I have been a loyal Gigabyte user for the past 5 yrs. It seems these boards are defective and Gigabyte should exchange them or come up with a bios update that resolves the issue.

    Please be sure you have Legacy USB Storage Detect enabled in the Integrated Peripherals BIOS page.

    Then if you want to boot from USB, I find it easier to Hit F12 at boot, then choose +HDD and on the next screen you will see your USB Device by name.

    Through a lot of trickery I can get it working now. I haven't got much time to play with it today but tonight I will report back on exactly what the issue is and how I am going about things now.
