You might be facing a completely different issue here,
but here are my two cents:
A BIOS update normally resets all BIOS options to default values.
If, for instance, you are using a RAID configuration, and update the
BIOS, the RAID setting will be changed back to some non RAID
setting, and you will get a BSOD on every boot.
Additionally, you can get a BSOD, if your original setting was AHCI,
and the BIOS default setting is non AHCI (or whatever it is called).
Therefore, you could try to skim through some BIOS settings,
especially boot device related ones, and reset them to their
And, if you are at it, just to be on the safe side, reset all BIOS
values before making these changes.
Hope this helps.
Yeah.. it was indeed the problem of AHCI.
I just changed AHCI to IDE.
Now windows xp and windows 7 boots without any problem.
Anyone knows if, after update for bios with ivy bridge support, the MOBO loses the support for sandy bridge?
