    Default GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0) failure to recognise SSD

    I put the following components together about a month ago. At the time the BIOS failed to recognise the SSD until I disabled multi-threading. After installing the OS, I re-enabled multi-threading and the set up RAID 1 on my two HDDs.

    I didn't notice any issues apart from the odd app crash until a couple of days ago when I got the BSOD. The machine rebooted before I could copy the error code, but the message started with:

    A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:


    I wasn't able to read any further before the machine rebooted.

    Since then the BIOS has failed to recognise the SSD, even with multi-threading disabled. Booting ends with: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

    I've tried various BIOS configurations based on advice found on the net (such as here: GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2 + SSD + RAID 1 (BSOD & Disk Boot Failure)), but to no avail so far.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Can you test this SSD on another setup?

    Sorry, I just replied to you about this in the other thread, the SSD may be faulty.

    Thanks, LSD. Saw your other reply.

    I've tried the SSD on another PC and it didn't show up there either, but since it's a pretty old PC, I didn't know how reliable the results were. I assumed the SSD was faulty when I first built the PC, but since I got it to work by making changes in the BIOS, I didn't want to discount the motherboard either.

    I've started the RMA process and am waiting to hear back from the retailer. I've also created a ticket with Gigabyte. Guess I'll just follow those processes through.

    Thanks anyway.

    It should show up on the other PC most likely, age wouldn't matter it would just run at SATAI speeds or something, it should be visible in the BIOS in IDE Mode.

    If you can try to test it on a more recent motherboard in IDE Mode just to be sure, before you send it off for RMA.

    I don't have another machine to try it on, but the return authorisation has just come through from the retailer, so I'll send it off tomorrow.

    Thanks again.

    So today I installed my replacement SSD and it was instantly recognised in the BIOS. I've installed Windows and I'm using the PC to make this post. As you suggested, LSD, the original SSD was faulty, evidently. Thanks again for your time.

    Great to hear it was just the SSD and not the board or something else.

    Thanks for the update, and it's nice to see your PC back in action! Post back anytime if you need further help with anything.
