We never had this problem with boards based on the older Core (non-i) processors and motherboards. What's the deal?
I doubt, that the detection of the boot drive has anything to do with the sort of the on-board Intel CPU.
- Which Operating System are your computers running?
- Have the Intel SATA Controllers been set to IDE, AHCI or RAID mode?
- If the HDDs/SSDs are running in AHCI or RAID mode, which Intel RST driver version has been installed?
1. Windows 7 Pro SP1
3. Probably a few different versions, with the majority on the latest. I'll double check this.
@ Struddys IT:
Thanks for your answers, which haven't eliminated my doubts, that your problem has anything to do with the CPUs of your Company's computers.
What I recommend to check is the version of the in-use AHCI driver of your computers. Especially a "downgrade" from any actual Intel AHCI driver v11.5.x.x.xxxx or higher named iaStorA.sys - using an additional SCSI filter driver named iaStorF.sys - to any "conventional" Intel RST driver - using just a single driver named iaStor.sys (latest version: 126.96.36.1996) - may induce troubles, because some iaStorF registry settings may not have been correctly deleted.
