Hi guys,

New owner here. Just set everything up and so far there have been a few small issues.
Sometimes I lose my LAN connection in windows when booting up. The NIC doesn't even show up, If I disable and re-enable in the Device manager then everything's good. Anyone else ever encounter this problem? I hope I don't have to RMA this thing.

Thanks!

Pretty sure I'm just gonna go ahead and pick up a GENE-Z but I just wish it an a couple extra SATA III ports or maybe an extra PCIE x16 slot...

I want to get this board too and thinking PCIE 3.0 isn't worth the extra money. Doubt even next gen chips from AMD and Nvidia will fully take advantage of the extra bandwidth.

IF I recall correctly those that had issues like this, it was either the order in which people tried to install the drivers and updates, etc ... and/or ... it was from people who tried to reuse a previous install of Windows / HDD without doing a complete 100% NEW FRESH CLEAN install of the OS and various drivers/bios/etc.  If that's what you did, you need to start over from the begining ... and the basic order of installation ...

 


 

How to install drivers =
 

Quote:
Should I download the drivers out of their site or the cd that comes with the motherboard?

CD first ... because you'll need the NIC driver to go online ... then you can decide if you want to update the BIOS and other drivers, SOME people are still running on the Original BIOS w/o problems, others updated and had issues, other updated and got rid of issues ... it's for sure a YMMV kinda thing.

Steps I took: ... others might have done it differently ?
- assemble your system, but leave INTERNET disconnected
- turn on/Boot up your system
- do a CLEAN install of Win7 on your SSD/HDD
- install NIC/LAN drivers from Asus Support CD
- Connect INTERNET & run windows updates
- install drivers & apps from Asus Support CD
- decide about BIOS/driver updates off Asus website support
Hope that helps

I am also having the same thing happen to me just built it about 2 days ago. When it's shut off for more then like 10 mins it does that.

Thanks for all your efforts, LA_Kings_Fan.

I would like to install Windows 7 on my two SSD drives configured as RAID 1 (mirror).
In the BIOS i set SATA to RAID mode.
During Post i tap Ctr-I to configure the RAID setup but it doesn't work,
i can not enter the utility.
The following screen only shows up for around 1 second:

RAID Volumes:
.. Name defined.
Physical Devices:
Port Device Model Serial # Size Type/Status(Vol ID)
2 M4-CT128M4SSD2 000... 119.2GB Non-RAID Disk
3 M4-CT128M4SSD2 000... 119.2GB Non-RAID Disk
Press to enter Configuration Utility...

At the left edge the text (some 2 letters) is off the screen,
"Non-RAID Disk" is shown in green.

I tried with the 2 BIOS versions from here too:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Maximus_IV_GENEZ/#download
Maximus IV Gene-z 0902 BIOS
1. Enable support for Next Gen 22nm Processor.
Maximus IV GENE-Z 0403 BIOS with IRST 10.6.0.1002
1. Enable the support of Intel Rapid Storage Technology version 10.6.0.1002 Release
I have the BIOS settings at default values except boot order and SATA-RAID mode.

I read many comments from users all over the internet asking about this problem.
Different solutions were offered, but i rarely saw a confirmation that they solved the problem.
I am using a PS2 keyboard.
Did you try if you can just hold the Ctrl-I or if you have to tap it in rapid succession ?
One suggestion was to use an old BIOS version to do it.
Do you know where i could find such an old BIOS version for this board ?

I'm using the same bios and have the same problem. But its not a big deal for me. Maybe the latest bios will fix it..

Since a few days it happened quite often to find my computer turned on while when I left it was on S3 sleep.

It looks like we are spammed with Magic Packet! I decided to turn off the WoL on my NIC card.
