Do you also have it set as #1 under "Hard Drive BBS Priorities"? Another possibility is you still have all of the OPROMS enabled. This forces your BIOS to look at the controllers to see if you want to configure them every time you boot up. You can disable them in the Advanced section of the UEFI. (If you didn't know.)


Hope this helps.

A bit wired. The idea with an beta would be to iron out the last bugs..? Shouldn't take that much time.

I have a feeling Asus is focusing on X79.

Can you explain this a bit better?

GPT? because i cant select my SSD as main boot drive, it must be Raido but my raid is not bootable, yet the system still boots but its strange, whenever i change the boot order i got msg: This hardisk may be infected by virus lol!

GPT is the new drive geometry for 2+ TB drives.

Win7 64 defaults to Installing as GPT on all non-formatted drives (new, unformatted), if available, unless you remove the strap from the boot order in the bios. Its the one with the UEFI accross it.

Unless you plan on booting from a drive larger than 2tb, there is absolutely no advange to using GPT over NTFS. It would be better to leave it as NTFS for comapatability.

You can also avoid it by making a fat32 bootable thumbdrive out of the iso and installing it from there.

If you look in the bios, if you installed GPT on your ssd, UEFI sould show up in the boot order.

You can compare this by sticking in the win64 disk, rebooting, and then lookin in bios.

prime 95 is pretty much the gold standard (dos boot mode)....

u can try Aida64, and Sisoft Sandra...they both have mem testers...but prime95 is better...

the intel test suite also has a mem test, but it isnt validated....
