    I still have detection issues on mine.

    when i get a detection error, ive let it take its time and it finds the non bootable ssd, obviously then i get a bootmngr missing, as it cant find boot ssd.

    I then ctrl alt delete, it then finds the boot drive again (sometimes), then have to go back to bios to set the boot ssd back to first drive.

    My boot ssd, is very new, however ive got so peeved now, ive just ordered a new c400 512g ssd.

    If this ends up as the problem, the mechanical hdd, still gets the thumbs up on reliability scale.

    I just dont get the time to mess about rmaing stuff all the time.

    Im running the Final F5 bios on my ud9, but still issues, im assuming the marvel fix ive still got installed, how o i check version?

    I love pcs.....

    Ssd should arrive Monday, knowing my luck it will be a fault with the bios still though, oh well a nice excuse to buy another new ssd,
    Im prob an idiot for going with a crucial one again though, if it is the ssd thats failing

    Some problematic or going faulty SSD's can do that, so it could be the SSD itself. You'll know soon enough once you install the C400!

    Only the BIOS I posted has the fix in it, that I'm aware of, so if you are not using that BIOS and used the firmware forced update with that BIOS, then it could still be a BIOS issue.

    You should stick with the BIOS I posted here with the fix in it, just for now to be sure. I would also use that BIOS with the new SSD as well, in AHCI mode, until you are sure the SSD is ok then once you are sure you can test newer BIOSes as you'll then know it's the BIOS if there is an issue.

    I'll look in F5 and see if the older ROM is used like in the "Fix" BIOS, if so then we know the fix is probably included and it's more likely a SSD problem than a BIOS problem.

    OK, F5 final and F5q have the same old Intel RAID ROM (8.9.1.1002), F5f has a newer one (8.9.0.1023), and I assumed the fix they applied was just the older Intel ROM since that was what they put into the UD7 instead of the new version 10 (10.1.0.1008) that was in it before they applied the fix.

    So not sure if that is 100% of their fix, or there is something else too, but if it's just that then the fix is applied to the F5 final as well. I'll ask tomorrow night when they are back in the office to find out for sure for you.

    appreciated.

    No boot up again this morning.

    ctrl alt delete fail

    ctrl alt delete again drive seen.

    back to bios, move drive to top of list again.

    But other days, the drive will be seen immediately, bit of a pain to know for sure now, what is the problem eh?

    not to happy if its the ssd, but atleast i can sort what is the issue, im guessing as a few of the others seem to be ok, may be my setup?,
    Its still not even known if ahci is ok.

    initially i thought the bios, as each time i went into it reset a few things etc, pc would boot.
    However now i found that a few ctrl alt deletes, has the same effect, maybe its the ssd,

    Thanks for your input LSD, i will sort this one way or another, then can update Monster2 with a bigger ssd

    YOu said you have a smaller SSD right? If so test with that for a few days, it would be better to try that so you can try to narrow it down, instead of dealing with the issues if it does turn out to be a faulty SSD.

    AHCI should be all that you are using with a SSD, that or single disk RAID Mode.

    Anytime man, always happy to help when I can! Hope you can figure out if it;s the disk or not!

    Lsd, all 3TB+ support BIOSes were disappeared in GIGABYTE website. Something wrong in these BIOSes?

    Do I need to rollback F7?

    I don't know, haven't heard anything about it.

    Are you using a 3TB+ drive, if not then I wouldn't worry, and if you are I wouldn't really worry either just wait for the next update.

    Thanks for your advice.

    I'm using WD Green 3TB now. As you mentioned, I will wait for the next update.
