Change sata mode to "AHCI" in your BIOS before installing Windows. wink.gif There's also a way to enable ahci through registry changes after you install, but I've never done that.

Is it worth updating the MEI Firmware and option rom. I run a 500gb Sata3 hard drive.

Just wish they would sort out the lucid license issue.

If you're not running drives in raid, then there's no point in updating the Option Rom. You can update the MEI firmware. I did, but haven't noticed any changes at all. However, I believe updating anything where you have to mod the bios will void the warranty (that's if Asus notices).

I think the Lucid license issue is the biggest stuff-up and can't really understand why it hasn't generated more posts.. maybe it's because 1) not many people use it 2) it didn't affect all boards (mine is fine still).

hey all,
i just purchased the Asus P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3, and i finished putting it all together after a week of stress testing and diagnostics. last night i completed the win7 ult 64bit install and installed the drivers for each component. All of the devices installed properly without a problem except one.

Under Sound, video and game controllers, I have a device called "High Definition Audio Device" with a Yellow exclamation point next to it. If i attempt to update driver, it says i have the latest driver. Under the properties it say "This device cannot start. (Code 10)." I dont know what device this is. I do have the front audio panel on my HAF X case connected to the motherboard but that would be the only other audio device I can think of. If i look into the properties of this device many of the fields lead to "HDAUDIO". It also says "Location 3 (Internal High Definition Audio Bus)"

Can anyone help me figure out how to either fix or get rid of this device please?

Could be the video card. It's for HDMI. So i would try to reïnstall that. Best is to use driver cleaner to first clean up older driver installations for AMD drivers.

To see if it is the Realtek audio, go into your BIOS and disable it temporarily. Then when you load back into the OS see if it is still there. If it is, it might be related to the Intel Z68 chipset, as shown below:

And if that is the case, you'll need to install the Intel video driver.
