    Default 2nd/3rd Hard Drives Disappear After Sleep

    GA-P55A-UD4P
    Intel X25M-80 Boot Drive
    2x Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB

    BIOS is set for AHCI mode

    My 1TB D:\ and E:\ drives keep disappearing after waking up the system. Not everytime but quite often (maybe 15-25% of the time). All three drives show up as ejectable in the removable devices list.

    I would appreciate any tips or ideas, thanks

    The only solution is to reboot, they do not show up in the disk manager even after rescanning for disks.

    are you using the latest bios? maybe use latest beta bios,look on main page for latest one make sure you select the right one for your board,then read on how to flash using q-flash heres the latest beta bios for your board it will probably have the sleep resume fix in it

    My original settings were to go to sleep after 30min and power down the hard drives after 15min.

    I'm currently using F8, the latest release. I'll try a beta if I don't get any other suggestions. Is there any way to specify they are not removeable?

    I've set the disks in the power configuration to not power down because I was having trouble getting them to spin back up after they powered down and some apps that needed to read/write data on those drives would hang.

    i cant think of anything else other than latest beta bios,i know it saves the sleep status to your ram then resumes from it,the ud5 had a long issue resuming from sleep which didnt get solved untill a new bios came out so thats my best advice + betas will have latest fixes months before a final bios is released

    Ok, thanks, I flashed to the one you linked and I'll give it a try for a while. I left most of the BIOS settings at default this time, just set the SATA ports to AHCI.

    After rebooting I have C:\ and E:\ only. That's never happened before always had C/D/E and would lose D/E after sleeping.

    However, the drive was there, just had to assign it a drive letter.

    Hmm, odd to hear.

    What ports do you have all your drives connected to, color and # please?

    I can't give an exact answer but I avoided the auxilliary type ports SATA3, etc. I was trying for 0-ssd, 1-dvd, 2-1TB, 3-1TB but I mixed them up so I think the ssd was 2.

    Then I tried disabling everything I didn't need (SATA3, USB3, floppy, serial/parallel, 2nd ethernet). The only one I didn't disable was the gigabyte sata which I wanted to because it tries to detect devices there at every boot up. I also re-arranged the order of the hard drives for boot up since the ssd was not first.

    Anyway, after flashing to the beta bios, I didn't redo all of the above changes, just set to ahci mode and a couple other changes (usb as 3rd boot device and mouse power on). So maybe that changed the device numbering and that is why Windows lost its drive letter.
