    DQ87PG - would not boot/post/enter BIOS if SATA port 0 is used.

    NinjaSkinja

      I just bought a new DQ87PG, a new i3-4330, a new Haswell certified Corsair Vengence 8Gb DDR3, a new PSU with Gold and

      Haswell certification and also 3x WD 500Gb Black + 1xSSD Corsair Force Series GT 90GB.

      I have updated the bios to the latest v.0146 (4/24/2014).

       

      The problem is that DQ87PG would not boot/post/enter BIOS if SATA port 0 is used. It will show a "bios has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s). Press Y or N" ...and even if pressing Y to enter Bios or N to use the old settings it will not do either of this, it just hangs showing the "F2 - enter bios, F7-update bios, .... Ctrl+P ". None of them works except Ctrl+Alt+Del for reboot.

      Free the SATA 0 port and problem solved. But this is not acceptable as I intent to use all 6 SATA ports.

       

      This problem is just plain stupid and in my 20 years experience of building PCs it is the first time I see this bug. I plan to return the mainboard if the next BIOS update will not solve this bug.
