    So...I did move my DVD drive to a different Sata connection and then flashed bios to f6b and also streamlined the msconfig a bit (there's proly a few items I could still uncheck on that). The result is that it's 17 secs to the bios screen, 13 more to get to "Starting Windows" and then I get full boot 30 seconds after that. Total time is 60 seconds. Not bad considering it was 80 seconds. I haven't done any registry tweaks, but I am overclocking (i7 930 @ 3.66 Ghz Stress Tested). I don't have many programs on this rig yet, but I do run Norton 2010, so that is probably slowing down the boot times a bit. I haven't seen the shutdown error lately...maybe the f6b is helping on that front as well. I had to go through all the settings again, so maybe I enabled some different stuff this time and I have the magic combination.

    Have you tried disabling the unused SATA ports in BIOS? I sorta remember seeing that in my wife's GB board manual. Something about speeding up bootup time.

    if you want to enable ahci in windows7 you need to make these changes in the registry,you can switch back to ide or ahci after you make thee changes whenever you want through the bios

    1.Exit all Windows-based programs.
    2.Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    3.If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
    4.Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesM sahci

    5.In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
    6.In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
    7.On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor

    After this you’ll have to restart your computer, go to BIOS and enable AHCI. When you log in to Windows again, you’ll notice the installation of drivers for AHCI. Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation
    I tried this changing the IDE to AHCI and thought I fubar my HDrive, but I went back to the BIOS and switched it back and I was able to get it sorted out.
    Now working in AHCI mode.
    Also is there any reason to assign the drives like you mentioned above?
    What if I add more drives will there be any order to them or will it automativcally take care of it?
    BTW great post.

    What do you mean about assigning the drives? OS drive should be on SATAII_0, and CD/DVD should be on SATAII_4 or 5, rest can go in the middle, is that what you mean?

    Adding future disks will be fine, just plug n play

    Shouldn't be a problem!

    Good luck, and of course let us know if you run into issues.
