    OK, with f7a, things are improved, but every cold boot now starts with D4 on the debug. PCI Resources allocation error

    A quick reboot will fix it, but if you dont the OS will slowly grind to a halt before hard locking.

    Im pretty certain Ive nailed this down with F7b.

    With my corsair Voyager 16gb USB stick plugged in the board goes loopy at boot.

    Heres a poor video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvjRIGJl0qY


    If I unplug every USB device except for my mouse and keyboard I can boot through perfectly!

    But with everything plugged in except the Voyager stick (That was only in to flash the BIOS) we are back to D4 on FIRST cold boot with nothing more than:


    Logitech G15 Keyobard
    Logitech G700 mouse
    Logitech G27 racing wheel
    XBOX 360 pad




    Im willing to bet it all on the logitech G27 now! I should of picked up on it before, but with this board with my G27 cycles its power three times at boot. On my ASUS P6T Deluxe board the G27 begins its power up calibration once windows has loaded.


    With this board it starts to calibrate and abruptly finishes twice before windows 8 has loaded then on the third time it succesfully calibrates.

    It surely down to the way is loading windows. Is there a fix for this, can it be fixed in a BIOS revision?

    EDIT: Heres a link to the bizarre pulsing the wheel does with this board.

    I suggest you to try to remove all memory except one, and try it then, still does not work? remove the memory and try another.

    Might be a memory problem. I also suggest a bios reset to default optimized.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried single sticks, then the other. Then in different slots as well.

    I can't however recall trying it with XMP off. I'd still be super annoyed if that fixes it considering I'm on a second set of RAM.

    Will it when I finish work, problem being I won't know if its cured till tomorrow after setting it tonite. That's the most frustrating part of it being cold boot.
