    Default [Solved] EX58-UD4P won't boot with eSATA drives

    My computer will not go pass recognizing the drives after posting with my two eSATA drives attached. I've tried it with both the ICH10 SATA ports and the Gigabyte GSATA2 ports. The computer will boot if the drives are unplugged. I can use them fine after the system is finished loading. I've only tried the F8 and the F10K bios. I can boot the computer with the eSATA drives attached via a USB 2.0 cable. Appreciate any help on this problem. My computer consists of the following:

    i7 Core 920
    6GB Cosair ram
    Gigabyte EX58-UD4P
    Nvidia GTX 260
    Creative X-Fi Champion Fata1ty PCI-E
    Seagate ST3320620AS 300GB SATA HD
    Maxtor 7Y250M0 230GB SATA HD
    Seagate Freeagent Pro 1TB eSATA/USB HD
    Seagate FreeAgent Xtreme 1.5TB eSATA/USB HD
    Intel Matrix Storage Console 8.9.0.1023
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

    To use the Seagate software, you have to temporarily connect by USB. Access the power options. Set the drive to "Never" so it will not turn off.

    Check the Boot Order in the BIOS so you aren't trying to boot from the eSATA drives.

    Changing the power settings worked. Thanks for the help.
