After updating to the latest BIOS for the DH77EB desktop board EBH7710H.86A.0071), I found that I could no longer boot into Windows. The BIOS settings between the update did not change (UEFI booting enabled, SATA AHCI mode set). The drive, an OCZ Agility 3 SSD with the latest firmware, is detected in BIOS and also shows up in the F10 boot menu. However, when using the boot menu, the UEFI option for the drive does not show up like it did with the previous BIOS version. Without UEFI, I cannot boot my installation of Windows as it was configured to use that mode and disk is GPT formatted.
I tried resetting the BIOS back to its default values using the recovery procedure and re-configuring to what it was before but it had no effect. No matter what, I get the "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" error message. This occurs even if the SSD is the only SATA drive plugged in.
Curiously, if I flash back to the previous BIOS version (EBH7710H.86A.0062) everything works fine. I also found that I can UEFI boot with the .0071 BIOS off a SanDisk Cruzer flash drive. I would like to use the latest BIOS because it fixes the fan issue that occurs when resuming from S3 sleep.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Intel Engineer tell me I am the only person in the world facing this UEFI problem ......... When I point to them this Intel forum I am not the only person, troubleshoot with them near to 2 hours on the phone also cannot resolve. Looks like it is RMA time for this motherboard.
Seems like Intel are struggling with UEFI BIOS's. Intel have had to outsource their UEFI BIOS work to Phoenix to sort it all out, although the news article isn't quite worded that way, it's easy to read between the lines.
I have DZ77GA-70K and i can't boot Windows using UEFI mode. I can enable UEFI and install Windows but when i want to boot it i get an error: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"
I have chatted with 4 different Intel tech support employees and 3 of them told me that i need a 3TB hdd to be able to use "UEFI Boot". The 4th guy tried to help me to solve my issue and he did not mention that i need 3TB hdd. So i don't want to chat with them again about this issue since i get different answers to my question and they are not able to solve it.
I'm not sure whether it should show "UEFI:" before the name of my SSD's in the boot menu, F10. It only shows it for flash drives, like "UEFI: Lexar Jump Drive".
I have 2 x 120GB Intel SSD's. Intel 520 and Intel 330. I guess this is caused by bios also. I have the latest bios 0039 but i have not tested if it worked on 0035 since i updated bios as soon as i built the PC.
I would really like to meet up the tech support that told you, you need a 3TB harddisk to use UEFI and give that person a tight slap. I told my tech support over the phone that I am not "the only person in the world" with UEFI issue for this 7 series motherboard. She ask me where I saw other people also with the same issue ? I told her, her very own Intel forum and till now she is still in denial and keep on repeating I am the only person with issue like a robot.
After wasting 2 hours talking to the tech support, they said they are going to simulate the fault in their lab and not surprising after so many days had passed (plug in haddisk, insert window 7 64 bits installation it take at most maximum 1 hour to setup considering they are expert in computer assembly do we need days to test ???) They finally email me back saying fault not simulated (perhaps they are still in denial or did not wish to admit such issue). Then I email back to them to proceed with RMA.
The least they can do is ADMIT they had UEFI and TV tuner PCIe detection problem. However they live in complete denial .......
I had own more then enough Intel motherboard to qualify myself (some of the older ones like the Intel DG965RY and DG33 box etc all I had thrown away as too many boxes to keep) to tell them straight in the face that my PCIe TV is able to work in every single one of their previous motherboard except this stupid DH77EB.
UEFI installation on 7 series mobo is a completely nightmare.
I have contracted with intel and they gave me a service ticket number. Then an engineer contact me, they tested and confirm my situation, he tell me that they will report this problem. I think we should wait the next bios release.
Do you contract intel with telephone and tell them to report bug?
