Sabertooth X58 " BOOT DEVICE LED"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
For some reason when booting, the system will hang on the mobo start screen, and BOOT DEVICE LED on mobo comes on. About 40s/ 1 Minute later it starts up as normal. Boots into Windows and everything.

I've tried switiching SATA ports, SATA cables, and still the same problem.

Can anyone tell me why this is?

And is there anything wrong with having a SATA II SSD plugged into a SATA III port?

System is same as specs below.

It may have something to do with your Marvell port (SATA III). There is not a problem plugging your SATA II SSD into a SATA III port.

If you plug your SATA II SSD into the Intel SATA II ports does it do the same thing?

To try it you will need to set you Intel ports to the same setting as your Marvell ports, IDE or AHCI.
