    Boot Bug with DH77KC and Bios revision 0100

    adamdotnet

      Hi, I run Windows 8 Pro RTM with the Intel DH77KC motherboard. The initial bios release 0065 were pretty bad, and 0095 was pretty huge upgrade, but I was still hoping for more refined bios. My computer would wake itself up, for example (Windows 8 maintenance option to wake up the computer is unchecked).

       

      I just flashed 0100 today and to my disappointment, I couldn't boot unless I mashed F10 to get the boot menu and selected UEFI: my SSD. The system would just perpetually hang with the three boot options on the upper left corner of the screen. However, I put the bios back to default and it would boot, nice integrating the UEFI boot splash with Windows 8 loading! It turns out the problem was when I had video optimization on. General optimization still works though.

       

      So does anyone have a similar issue with video optimization turned on? I have yet to try sleep mode on the new bios revision, but has anyone had that issue too?
