Just got the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO and an Intel 510 120GB SSD. I have a strange problem with the SATA 6 port 1.
Port 1: Will not see the Intel SSD, but will see a WD HDD
Port 2: Will see the Intel SSD!
Why is port 1 not seeing the SSD but will see a WD HDD?
No RAID or IDE. It's all set to AHCI
DVD is in port 6 all set to Hotswap except for DVD
I installed W7 64 onto the SSD using port 2 (shows as Disk 0 in W7) and it was all ok. Everything shows it is at 6Gb/s. It works 100% fine on Port 2 but no matter what I do it will not show up if I move to Port 1. Although Port 1 works fine for other devices.
The only thing I haven't tried is another SATA3 or SSD device on Port 1 because I don't have any.
Model: Intel SSDSC2MH120A2
Thanks for the help!
Here's an update. I tried a Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 256GB SATA III on Port 1 and the BIOS did not recognize it either! But sure enough it did see a plan old Western Digital HDD.
So I guess I can rule out the Intel 510 SSD as the issue. Now I wonder what is up with that port?
Thanks for the help, totally appreicated but I think I got it figured out.
I was able to get another P8Z68-V Pro board to try and sure enough on the new board it worked fine! So I'm guessing I actually had a bad port on the motherboard, rare but those things do happen once and while. Glad that's over!
