    When I mean powered off I mean shutdown - not sleep or hibernate. The PSU is still on. I have never heard of a CMOS battery dying because the computer was in a shutdown state overnight! Regardless the date and time are never wrong. It just as if something got corrupted. Also I also get a BOOTMGR error sometimes - and this too ONLY on startup from a shutdown state - never on a hot reset. This too is inexplicable because when I get this error, it always works fine after I hit the reset switch. And before you ask I have checked my drive order in BIOS before and after such an error. It is set in the correct boot order - first drive 0 is the windows partition, followed by the rest. This problem baffles, and really really annoys me.

    To answer your question Stooopid, I am using the standard AHCI microsoft driver, not the AMD one. Never installed the AMD drivers for the motherboard.

    Come to think of it I will give the AMD drivers a try. That could be why I am facing the BOOTMGR error.

    Problem remains even after installing the AMD drivers. If the computer is powered down ie after a power failure, on bootup I get a BOOTMGR missing error. If I hit the reset switch after that I am able to load windows normally. Anyone have any idea why this happens? Never occurs on a "hot" reset.
    Thanks

    Did you check the voltage on your cmos battery after it was off overnight?

    I recommend waiting overnight after a shutdown. Remove the battery and use a voltage meter or multimeter. The digital ones are nice. Set it to read up to 10 or 20 DC volts. If less then 3 volts replace it. It is possible for the time and date to still be correct but loose some bios settings. It seems like the issue is between P.O.S.T. and Boot up just before the RAID ROM. All I am suggesting is it's where I would start and it's worth a try.

    The AMD drivers are working just fine. Not experiencing any of the issues faced by those guys. I was using the microsoft drivers before. The issue I am facing is not caused by the AHCI or the drivers since the issue remains with both the AMD and Microsoft drivers.
