    Unreliable SATA disk detection with DH87RL motherboard?

    rkits

      I find that I an unable to boot from certain hard drives about 60% of the time with this motherboard.  I have the latest BIOS update and am not seeing a pattern with the drives that work or do not.  One drive is a 1TB physical disk, the other is a 25GB SSD and both are equally unreliable.

       

      At boot I either get a message that no boot devices are detected or else everything works fine.

       

      If I boot from another drive that works consistently, and have another that does not in another SATA port, I often do not have that other drive visible to my OS (Linux) or to the BIOS for that matter.

       

      How can I narrow down the issue to get this fixed?

       

      Thanks,

       

      Rob
