leave only ssd and dvd connected... try different sata ports if you have addon sata port chip..
yellow sata ports should be intel and pink should be marvel or something... so use intel ports
Change your SATA mode (in BIOS) to Compatible and try again...?
The system-board CMOS settings really don'a allow for that. Rather I've got the following options for SATA:
That's it for this implementation of the intel P45 chipset.
At this point, I'm having a hard time believing that the intel solution isn't fundamentally flawed, being rather a sort of CYA solution that won't work with a lot of motherboards.
BTW, the mobo has an Award BIOS.
I guess your best bet would be to take the SSD out (of your current motherboard)
and into another motherboard to update the firmware on the SSD.
I heard/read somewhere that nVidia chipsets are not recommended.
That's probably what I'll try next.
I'll post as to how it turns outs.
The SATA Mode of "Disabled" is just a different name for “Legacy”,“Compatibility”, or "IDE" mode. Each motherboard manufacturer calls it a different thing.
Just set your storage contoller to this SATA mode and then boot on the disk. Don't forget to re-enable your original SATA mode after rebooting.
Looks like you're right. A quick look at the motherboard manual shows the following,SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) 1Enables or disables RAID for the SATA controllers integrated in the Intel ICH10R Southbridge orconfigures the SATA controllers to AHCI mode.Disabled - Disables RAID for the SATA controllers and configures the SATA controllers toPATA mode. (Default)RAID - Enables RAID for the SATA controllers.AHCI - Configures the SATA controllers to AHCI mode. Advanced Host ControllerInterface (AHCI) is an interface specification that allows the storage driver toenable advanced Serial ATA features such as Native Command Queuing andhot plug.
