Hi, I've bought this motherboard, the DP965LT because my old one died.
It's great, I love it, but i've found an issue, it skips certain devices during boot even though they are detected by the BIOS, if I go to BIOS setup they are listed correctly, and selecting them manually using F10 leads to the same result: The motherboard ignores the drive and proceeds with booting the rest of devices.
The devices from which the motherboard refuses to boot are a 320 GB WD HDD and a 16 GB Kingston DataTraveler3 USB flash drive.
None of that works and I don't know what to do or try next.
I can boot the drives if I install grub on another hard drive and boot it from there, but don't like this workaround (though I could go with that since I have 3 HDD's and at least one of them works with grub)
Any suggestions? Thanks for your attention.
OK, I've solved it, I feel pretty stupid though:
Both the drive and the USB key were missing a primary bootable partition, they had primary partitions of course, but were missing the bootable flag.
Even though all my other systems boot both the USB and the HDD without having a partition marked as bootable, I really don't care as I can boot them somehow.
I hope someone finds this useful or something.
