    Problems with UEFI Boot on DB75EN (BIOS version 0045)

    splurben

      I am a system builder working with some new DB75EN boards.

       

      I'm installing Windows 8 Pro 64-bit on these boards.

       

      Specs as follows:

           Board: DB75EN AAG39650-303

           BIOS: ENB7510H.86A.0045.2013.0307.1509

           Processor: i5-3570K

           Memory: 8GB Kingston Extreme in slot DIMM1 at 1600MHz (default)

           No additional PCI / PCIe devices

           Hard Drive: SanDisk SDSSDH2128G

       

      I install Windows 8 Pro 64-bit with Motherboard in UEFI mode (with Legacy disabled).

       

      Windows installs and reboots automatically.

       

      Motherboard repeated reboots forever during post. I have Secure Erased the SSD twice and reinstalled, and set motherboard to defaults except disabling Legacy Boot.

       

      Every time the motherboard repeatedly reboots when UEFI is on and Legacy is off.

       

      I have installed many other INTEL motherboards with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit and UEFI mode with legacy off without issues.

       

      Does anyone have any ideas?

          Hello Kirk, I am going to duplicate this issue, in order to provide you the results.

           

          Regards.

            Kirk,

            I duplicated the issue and I was able to install Windows 8, with Legacy disable and UEFI enable.

             

            This is the system configuration I used:

            Motherboard DB75EN   AA# G39650-400

            Processor: I7-3770K

            Memory: 8 gb Kingston 1600 Mhz

            Intel SSD X25V

            Windows 8 64-bit

             

            1. Installation: BIOS version 0041

            I changed the settings on BIOS before the Windows installation to Legacy and UEFI enable.

            I was able to boot to Windows with the following settings:  Legacy and UEFI enable/ Legacy enable and UEFI disable.

            If I disable Legacy, but leave UEFI enable I could not boot to Windows.

             

            2. Installation: BIOS version 0041

            I changed the settings on BIOS before the Windows installation to Legacy disable and UEFI enable.

            I was able to boot to Windows with the following settings:  Legacy disable and UEFI enable / Both enable.

            If I enable Legacy, but disable UEFI I could not boot to Windows

             

            Updated the BIOS to version 0044, I changed the settings on BIOS to Legacy disable and UEFI enable and installed Windows 8.

            I was able to boot to Windows with the following settings:  Legacy disable and UEFI enable / Both enable.

            If I enable Legacy, but disable UEFI I could not boot to Windows

             

            3. I did the same thing after updating the BIOS to version 0045. Same settings. Same behavior.

             

            At this point, since I was able to installed Windows 8 with those settings previously changed on the BIOS, please try again and change the settings before installing the operating systems.

             

            Please let me know.

              Hi, Kirk,

              I, too looked into this. Took me a while to find the same CPU.

               

              Here's my system configuration: 

              Motherboard DB75EN   AA# G39650-400

              Processor: Core i5-3570K

              Memory: 1x 8GB Geil 1333 Mhz

              Intel 80GB SSD

              Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

              BIOS: EN0045, Legacy Boot disabled, UEFI Boot enabled

               

              The OS installed and booted just fine. Did this happen on the first boot after install or after you loaded some drivers? You might try setting BIOS back to defaults, saving, then disable Legacy Boot and reinstall.

                I'll check these out today. I thought it was strange too as I hadn't had this problem before.

                  You must reset the BIOS to factory defaults as the internal values have changed when the BIOS was updated. On this board, you do this by selecting Load BIOS Profile (or similarly named option) and then selecting to load the default settings.
