post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey there, iam not very good at hardware but can you guys help me a little?
i just upgraded my system to this:
I7 2600k 3.4ghz
Asus sabertooth p67
Corsair vengence 8gb ddr3 1600mhz
Corsair force series 120gb SSD
2 500gb 5200rpm harddisk.

My issue is that when i fire up my pc with only the ssd connectec a red light ''Boot device LED'' lights up, but i get into windows anyway, but as soon as i connect my 500 gb harddisk the light is still on but this time after boot screen i just get plain black screen and nothing happens, i dont use SATA 6gbs i use the brown and black ones please help me :-(
-Thanks!

change your boot order to boot from the SSD first

Yes i just used them in my old system i actualy just added new motherboard, cpu, ram. and reinstalled windows on the SSD and now i can only boot up using ssd if i try setting another harddisk to the brown or black sata, it shows boot screen and flashes it again and the boot device LED lights and nothing more happen
EDIT:
Now iam able to start it up with all three harddisk
But it still show the Boot device LED when i turn on the computer then the boot screep comes, and it flashes and comes again and the LED is off but now its ignoring me that it need to flash boot screen two times

how many SATA slots do you have and are any of them SATA3?
you may have them plugged into wrong ports.
also have you messed with the jumpers on the HDDs?

have you tried using the SSD on the 6G/s and then running the HDDs from the 3G/s?
jumpers are on your HDD. you can use jumper connectors to modify the speed of your drive. It's those 8 pins (some have 6) on the back of your HDD that you dont plug anything in to

Okey i can start the pc up using the SSD in the INTEL 6gb/s and the two standard harddisk in the 3gb/s normal slots, but it still hold the Boot device LED about 5 secs in the start until it flashes the boot up screen twice
Its like this, it start up boot screen with the LED ON, and then it search for a harddisk but it isnt there, then boot screen again and it search and then it finds one and the LED is off, like its searching for the Marvell slots first or smthin
