    Default GA-X58A-UD7 - boot freezes at SATA Bios when AHCI enabled

    Hi guys,

    Started a reinstall today, and decided to update to bios F7 from F6.

    Since then, I have not been able to get past the Serial ATA AHCI BIOS screen, with it freezing on "Controller Bus#00, Device#1F, Function#02: 06 Ports, 03 Devices".

    I have to clear my bios to get past this (and reenter bios).

    I have a Corsair P128 SSD and a WD 320gb connected to ports 0-3, and a WD FAEX 1tb connected to port 6, all on AHCI.

    If I set all the drives back to IDE, all works fine. Prior to the update to F7 I had no issues booting with my SSD in AHCI, though I have previously had issues with my sata 3 FAEX drive.

    I tried removing all my drives, bar the ssd drive, but that made not difference. I tried booting without the ssd, and presto, i got all the way through boot.

    Any thoughts? From what I read, an ssd drive needs to be in ACHI mode for best performance.

    Any advice is appreciated :)

    Cheers, Jez
