My apologies. I just spotted a typo. The message refers tot a mini-ITX chassis, while I have this installed in a Fractal Desigh Define R3 mid-tower chassis. Clearly the message somehow identifies something in my setup as incorrect, But I can't figure out what it might be, Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
This is a known issue in BIOS 0037 for the DZ68BC. See also thread:
Version 0036 doesn't have this 'screen' bug. I am running 0037 and this issue doesn't seems to impact the behavior of the BIOS besides the text screen at startup.
Intel is working on version 0038 but it seems that this update is stuck somewhere in the development\verification\releases pipeline.
Well, thank you for that. Now I feel better. I'm beginning to realize that I should stick to boards like Asus or Asrock or (anybody else) since I've had more trouble with my Intel board builds that I ever have with non-Intel boards and Intel processors.
And the cheap way one gets brushed off by any form of real tech support is also quite annoying.
I have two builds with an MSI board and a Gigabyte board, and I hardly ever have any issues with those. SIlly me for thinking that Intel would design their boards and processors to work together. (and of course, test it!)
