If I enter the BIOS by pressing F2, the boot priority section does not show all my drives. I have two Intel SSD drives, and 3 spinning media drives (Seagate and WD). It's only showing one of my SSD drives. All of the drives show up under the SATA devices though.
Even more oddly, if I enter the BIOS Boot Menu by pressing F10, all of my drives are present.
Looks like there are some serious bugs in the boot priority drive detection.
I downloaded the latest BIOS the other evening and it didn't make any difference.
This is very frustrating as my primary boot drive is the one that is missing!! I've had better luck with the cheap Taiwanese motherboards. Very disappointing to see bugs like this in an Intel board.
Anyone have any pointers for me? Not sure how to go about getting this resolved.
Yup, it's missing from the 'boot drive order' menu. Just seeing one of my two identical ssd drives. One has Windows installed on it and the other Linux.
As you can see it shows up here under the SATA drives.
Both SSD drives appear under the F10 Boot menu. This is the only way I can select my boot drive and boot from it.
I was able to find a work around. If I go into the BIOS and switch to "Classic" view, and then change the Boot Priority settings from "Advanced" to "Normal", I can see all the drives. I was able to adjust the priority so that my formerly missing drive would boot first. Everything is fine now. Just wagging my head about how broken this BIOS is.
Hey good to hear you got it sorted!
Yeah the mouse interface does not always show all the options available in the k/b interface.
But hang on, I'm confused here. Without a dual boot manager for win and linux, how were you going to select a boot drive without using F10 anyway? If you do have a boot manager, then drive order shouldn't matter - or does it??
I use grub2 as the dual boot manager. It installs stuff in the MBR of one of the drives and the rest are chained together through the grub config. It just so happened that the drive with grub in the MBR was the one that was not showing up in the BIOS boot order screen.
Thankfully, all is well now, but I sure wish Intel would fix this very bad user experience.
