it is just for extra pressure on the heatsink block itself, no need to mess with it.

When I ran into the "Reboot and select proper boot device" I assumed that this trick just didn't work, and reinstalled Windows from scratch, which worked fine. Real puzzling. I still haven't tried booting with all SATA devices unplugged but the system drive, I should have tried that before but was hoping to avoid it.

I have a question are you changing AHCI/IDE selection after you change your boot order? Do you have any thumb drives?

I haven't been changing AHCI/IDE, should I? I think I have the SSD set as AHCI. I'll check next time to make sure. I have no thumb drives plugged in.

Windows says TRIM is enabled, that means it's operating in AHCI I think.

I don't know if this is relevant or unusual but my system drive, the SSD, it has a 100MB "EFI system partition" at the front of it, and then the rest is a NTFS primary boot partition. I think Windows made it that way when I installed it, can't remember for sure.

Looks a lot like a UP4. I really like the color scheme.

That's what I was thinking and it is right on the mark for my price range in 2 weeks when I get my student loans check. tongue.gif

UD4H has world record for ram OC already. It is part of Ultra Durable 4, so it doesn't use IR3550 mosfets, but it has 8 true phase design. Otherwise it is a mix of UD3H and UD5H features with a design of UP4.

I just tried unplugging every SATA device but the system SSD, no change. Then I tried moving the SSD to port 0 (Intel SATA3 port), still didn't work. Tried putting the SSD on the Gigabyte SATA3 port, nothing. Plugged everything back in and now I can't boot when selecting the SSD from the F12 boot menu, this worked up until now. Choosing Windows MBR on that menu does work though. SATA mode is set to AHCI in the bios like I believe it should be.

I don't even know what a UEFI partition is, but I guess I better start looking into it. What I don't understand is everything was working just great until I plugged a new HDD into port 1, I didn't change anything about the SSD.

I found someone with a problem similar to mine, he managed to fix it, I'll have to see if I can repeat his method. He repaired the Windows installation with a Windows installation disc. http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=38841

I just checked things out with Gparted, I didn't really know what to look for but things seemed fine. Then I tried setting BIOS first boot device to "Windows Boot Manager" which did not work before, it worked!

Snakes,
Do the repair like the other guy did by running your Windows installation disc. After the repair get yourself a copy of the latest EasyBCD free program, just google for it then learn how to use this program, you will be glad you did. This program will allow you to set your boot order any way that you desire, as long as windows recognizes the drives ( you have assigned them a drive letter ). In case you are not familiar with the procedure...just go to control panel, Administrative tools, computer management, Disk management. You highlight a disk, right click on it and choose assign a drive letter, do so, windows will recognize your drive now.
