I discovered ALL my problems with hibernate/resume, code 58 holds on startup and portable drives going zombie was due to the lousy USB3.0 chip and Renesas drivers on this lotherboard. What's worse is that Intel KNOWS they stink (see multiple posts a year ago when first reported) and have done NOTHING about it. Now they will not even reply to messages about it on this board. HELLO INTEL, ANYBODY HOME?
The solution, for $31 at Amazon is an Inateck pcie USB3.0 card. 5 rear ports and a plug for the front ones. My machine boots faster, hibernates and resumes without any special consideration and my portable drives stay connected all the time. Must turn off USB3.0 in Bios.
P.s. I tried everything, new drivers, bios the works. Took week of my own time to diagnose but problem is solved. Thanks intel for nothing. No wonder you are getting out of the desktop board business.
Oh, and this Jive software for using this board on mobile devices sucks too. I cannot even get back to the forum once I go to a message.
I know this is a dead thread for an old board... but this is a problem with the firmware on the Renesas USB 3 controller.
The firmware downloads are only available for the DX79TO and DX79SR motherboards despite being most likely the same controller chip, as these boards were released simultaneously and we see the same error listed here from most users.
If anyone at Intel is listening then could you please post a compatible firmware update for the DX79SI motherboard as this error is inexcusable
I have had teh same problem for years. Here are the 2 options (both painful)
1. Leave the power to the external USB3 device off when you boot. Power up the device once the OS is up. This works most of the time
2. After booting up, go to device manager and uninstall both the usb3 controllers. It will automatically reinstall the device and the device will work.
Both of these options suck, but I have not found a better way. Intel has been ignoring this for a long time. They are not going to pay attention to this now.
