Hello again - no update?
Wolud be thankfull for any kind of information.
Still ___no____ answer - real strange.
Need more info?
Expensive board - no help!
I'm looking at the glossary of BIOS settings for that board and I don't see a reference to smartboot. I'm not saying it doesn't exist, but since I'm not familiar with it, I can't fathom what it is doing.
Can you clarify please, what menu is it under? What is it specifically called? What does it say in the right hand column for actions?
Sorry - wrong name: I ment Fastboot.
It is on "Boot" options screen, left in the middle "Boot Device ..."
Hi again Jason!
Thanks for you technical link - but there is nothing new for me.
To you question:
I build a system with following simple configuration
2 x Samsung SSD 830, connected to port 0 and 1 of RAID controller, running RAID 1
Port 2 is running as AHCI, hot plug device
Port 3 is running as DVD
Port 4 and 5 are running as RAID 1, connected to 2 x WD Caviar Black 2TB SATA 6Gb/s
2nd controller currently not used
CPU: Intel core i7 3770K
RAM: 32 GB Pacakge Simm DDR3 PC1600 32GB CL9 Corsair 1,5V
System configured to automatic settings, Performance options but no overclocking
It is possible to switch any of the displayed option on - but any click causes a non-bootable system.
Hi, try to remove the Samsung SSD 830 drives. I have noted some boot and stability problems with this MB when another SSD than Intel (especially Samsung - I have also 830 series drive) was connected.
Sorry Martin - I have currently no other HDD, but I will try as soon as possible - thank for your information.
Meanwhile I upgraded to v 53 BIOS - did not solve anything.
Thanks an best regards
Hi, I had problems with 0053 (another thread) when "Disable legacy boot" option was enabled. MB failed to POST. After solving this I successfully boot linux kernel in UEFI mode from SystemRescueCD or ArchBOOT and later after some troubles also my Gentoo from SSD drive. I had to install Win 7 64bit to another partition on the SSD drive. Before that my SSD drive wasn't recognized as a UEFI drive. After Win7 installation also Grub 2 appeared in the MB boot menu.
So, I can conclude that 0053 bios solves Linux kernel boot problem for me.
