    Default BSOD!! GA-EP45-UD3P ver. 1.0 w/ fresh F11d BIOS Update

    Well... Here's my story..

    I purchased a new OCZ Vertex2 80GB SSD at the beginning of January and was running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on my system until it finally went belly up sometime around March after continuously posting "SMART COMMAND FAILED" during boot-up and before I had a chance to update the BIOS to the Beta F11d as was recommended to me on the OCZ forums.

    I'm finally trying to get the computer back up and running and discovered that I have to RMA the Vertex2 back to OCZ because it's “Bricked” and unrecognizable via any means I've attempted. I did finally update the BIOS on my GA-EP45-UD3P to the Beta F11d at appeared to have worked. The update process said it was successful and I can access the BIOS and change parameters.

    I'm back to using either one of a set of older OCZ Vertex and Agility 60GB SSDs I originally had set up in a RAID0 Config on this same computer (running Win7 Ult 64b) until that setup failed on me late last year. These 2 OCZ SSDs are still able to be seen and I have so far updated their firmware, erased and then reformatted them both.

    I am attempting to use each one individually to install Windows XP Professional 32 Bit (I planned on having these as secondary boot drives for the 2 computers I have anyways just for running XP) and will re-install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 on this GA-EP45-UD3P again as the main operating system once I get back my 80 GB Vertex2 from OCZ.

    Now here's my problem: (sorry if the above is too much information) BSOD!!

    Every time I attempt to install Windows XP Professional 32b I get the BSOD after the Windows install disk loads and tries to start Windows to commence the install process.

    I've tried it using my Vertex 60GB SSD. BSOD! I get “Shutting down computer to prevent damage!”

    I've tried it using my Agility 60GB SSD. BSOD! I get “Shutting down computer to prevent damage!”

    I also attempted using a brand new never installed WD 640GB Caviar Black HDD and... wait for it...

    I get BSOD “Shutting down computer to prevent damage!”!!!!!I

    I'm beginning to think it just may be a BIOS problem I created by updating my GA-EP45-UD3P to the Beta F11d BIOS. Does anyone think I may be on to something here???

    Now, while figuring out how to refresh, update and reformat my 2 working OCZ SSDs I did send a question off to Gigabyte as to why after a year they don't have a F11 BIOS to download on their GA-EP45-UD3P rev. 1.0 motherboard support page and you know what they responded back with??

    A link to a F11c BIOS update!!!

    Give me a gun so I can shoot myself in the head!!

    Now, here are my questions:

    Was it a bad idea for me to use the Beta F11d?

    Can I backtrack to the F11c?

    Is this really my problem in the first place or should I be looking somewhere else?

    You can try to use this version of F11d. ep45ud3pmod.11d.rar I modded it with updated intel raid rom.

    If that still does not work for you but F11c works you can flash back to it.

    Acebmxer,

    I'll try out your F11d and let ya know if I'm successfull. Gigabyte Tech Support just responded back to my note I sent about why they sent me BIOS F11c and they said both F11c AND F11d was included in their zip file. That's about all they told me tho'. Wish they coulda given me some tech recommendation info along with it. Like what the heck they thought was going on and which one they recommended. I guess that's why I'm here on this forum.

    Chike,

    As far as BSOD code, the "Technical Info" at the end of the BSOD alert was:

    STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D663c, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    My system is as follows:

    MoBo: GA-EP45-UD3P rev. 1.0

    CPU: Intel LGA775 Q9400

    Memory: 4GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 PC2-8500 C5 1066 Mhz (2 Sticks @ 2GB ea.) P/N: TWIN2X4096-8500C5D G
    (bought another 4GB set but system didn't seam to like it and when I spoke to Corsair Tech support they said they don't recommend using beyond 4GB of this particular Memory)

    Video Card: MSI R5750-PM2D1G Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5

    Power Supply: OCZ ModXtream Pro 700W

    Hard Drive: OCZ SSD's for OS (hopefully) WD Caviar Black for Storage

    Optical Drive: ASUS DVD-RW

    Main OS: Win7 Ultimate 64 on OCZ 80GB Vertex2; 2ndry OS: WinXP Professional 32 on OCZ 60GB Vertex

    Acebmxer, extra question,

    I'm trying to run my SSD's in AHCI mode rather than IDE or RAID, does your RAID tweak affect AHCI??? Please forgive if that sounds like a stupid question. As soon as I'm able to press the on switch on these things and they boot up without a problem I try to purge all this setup crap from my memory.

    STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE
    Were the SSDs/HDD selected as first boot hardrive in disk boot order?
    Were there other drives connected at that time?

    EDIT: at what stage of the installation you get this error?

    error 7b I think ussally comes from switching from raid to ide or ahci after windows is installed. But you say you get this after windows install finish copying from the cd and does its first reboot and boot from the hdd/ssd?

    If you set bios for intel raid. It will use AHCI or any stand alone drives not in a raid array. This is why you see the AHCI boot screen before and or after the Intel Raid rom screen.

    I suggest my bios mod as it has updated intel raid support. Newer support for ssd's.

    I think it's before copying files, leaning tpward the pre-install driver that's needed with F6.

    Chike,

    I had my DVD drive selected as my first Boot Device, then HDD and after that USB. Didn't think it'd matter during first install and I usually leave it that way after OS is up and running. Your Question DID remind me that I forgot to Pull those little USB "F"ers from the motherboard so I don't end up with the SSD being some crazy drive letter other than C. (which I will do immediately)

    As for when I get the error, it is AFTER the Install loads all the drivers and files and then gives me the message "starting Windows" whereby it then hangs for three or four minutes followed by the BSOD error message.

    Acebmxr,

    Yep, hangs and BSODs as stated above. I'll try your F11d, then switch to RAID and try it, and if it doesn't work after that I'll mess with the boot lineup and put the SSD first. But first off gonna go pull those little USB turkeys from the MoBo!

    If you have a floppy, download the pre-install drivers from GB web site, and press F6 key when prompted.
    If you have no floppy drive you must create a sleapstream installation CD with the AHCI/RAID drivers.
    Instead all that just install in IDE mode and witch to AHCI later.
