serial ata ahci bios version iSrc 1.20E BIOS hang

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Rev 2.0 motherboard with FF BIOS on it.
A few months ago I had a problem during the BIOS stage of boot where I got the following error :

serial ata ahci bios version iSrc 1.20E

It had the numerical code 23 , whenever the machinee boots and it stops at 23 it won't go any further. I solved this in the past by switching SATA cables around basically what drive was plugged into what controller. Today I transplanted my system into a new NZXT Phantom as an upgrade for cooling and organization. I booted up and I was greeted with the error I had seen in the past. I have been told to avoid this error I would have to reinstall windows (this was the suggested solution when I first experienced it) but I find that to be a silly solution because this computer has been clean installed about 3 time since I last saw that error with the latest drivers for all the hardware.

What can I do to prevent this from happening ? I would like to use whatever SATA port I please with my drives and not have to spend a while swapping around hard drives until I have the correct combination to get my computer to boot every time I rebuild it or get new hard drives.

thanks
Wheatley
