    Any drives connected to the eSATA ports (on the rear panel) are not detected in the BIOS. Where they should be says Not Present.

    I have updated the BIOS to F12 today and drives connected to the eSATA ports are still not detected in the BIOS.

    Can anyone, particularly those who have this board, confirm that drives on the eSATA ports (rear panel) are seen in the BIOS on their boards?

    Also is anyone seeing any data displayed on the POST screen with this UEFI BIOS?
    Tab does not work to get to this screen. I must disable the Full LOGO screen in the BIOS then all I see is only the Americanmegatrends
    LOGO with nothing else on the POST screen including no directions at the bottom.

    This occurs in BIOS versions F8, F10, F11c and F12.

    Thank you.

    Tried with another ESATA cable? which version of SATA driver you installed? Have you installed the eSATA driver for Marvell chip?

    I have tried 3 different eSATA cables that work fine on my GA-EP45-UD3P.

    Drivers are not yet loaded when the BIOS should see the eSATA drives.

    Once Windows 7 loads, I can see and use the eSATA drives as expected but unless they appear in the BIOS, you cannot boot to them nor use the in RAID.

    Same motherboard, BIOS F10. I haven't found any way for POST info to show up, just the AMI logo. Switched to "Legacy ROM" from UEFI, still no POST.
    I have a problem similar to yours, a Samsung SATA DVD drive attached to the Marvell controller isn't seen in BIOS, but is fine once I'm in Windows. Tried it on the eSATA connectors with the same results.
    All Marvell controllers set to AHCI, hard disks on the same controllers show up fine in BIOS.
