    Default GA-EX58-UD5 boot problems

    I have a newly built system that includes the following:
    Ga-EX58-UD5 motherboard with Intel Core i7 920 processor
    Corsair Hydro H50 water cooler - 12 GB OCZ XMP ready 1600 RAM
    EVGA 9800 GTX+ video card
    Cooler master Cosmos case with 900 watt UCP power supply
    One 1TB Seagate SATA disk drive
    One SATA Pioneer CD/DVD burner and One SATA Pioneer BluRay burner

    Problem: I can not cold boot any medium from CD or USB to cause this system to startup. Have tried Windows XP - Linux Live and Boot132 CD

    Have BIOS set to AHCI and it appears that the diver is loaded after post.
    I have not loaded any thing off the CD supplied with the motherboard.

    I t will however run an OS that was previously loaded onto a hard drive
    Any ideas to help?

    Hit F12 at startup to get to the boot menu, then choose your device by name or choose HDD+ for USB and on the next screen you will see your USB by name.

    SATA Disk drive for the OS should be install into SATA2_0 (Blue) and then your DVD/BD should be put into SATA2_4 and 5

    Then for AHCI you should have these settings set in Integrated peripherals

    Integrated Peripherals

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

    Gigabyte/J.Micron Controller (White Ports)
    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ............. Enabled
    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ........... IDE

    Some board/BIOSes have issues booting to CD with AHCI set, so you may need to set this to IDE to install from CD (Just set that, but still load the AHCI Driver). Booting from USB will not cause this issue though, so you may want to install from USB if you have a bootable USB ready with install media
