Something is off here, i login to my mediafire accounts and saw 0 downloads to the p8z68-v mpm bios, are you sure u are using the right file ?

extract the zip and check the filename - p8z68-v-gen3-asus-3402_mod.rom

Surely. I saved into a flash drive and my hard disk.

Weird, you can download again, i will recheck the bios file to make sure that i've inserted the right modules in place later on today/tomorrow.

Just checked the bios file, it is good, should work? idk?

I tried many times with relative success . In he first boot windows always shows an error and can not load, just rebooting and then it loads. As I use a Raid array for games and the system in a SSD, garikfox thinks the error is because of the raid and I need to redo the array what I did not do yet. Just tried loading the intel raid driver during the pre-install and a clean installation of the system.

But why windows loads fine in the second try and won't for the first.

So, I'll test without my raid and just with a ssd and for the last test I will do by redoing the array if the error vanishes.

Hmmm, this is interesting, you are experiencing a lame annoying bug weirdsmiley.gif , The bios file is okay, i checked it when i created it and i also extracted all of the modules once again to verify that i didn't mix things up, and i didn't.

If it was a case of a malfunction bios file, then windows shouldn’t have start on 2nd go, this thing complicated everything ..., are you using a clean windows or is it the same windows setup that you had before the bios flash ? maybe there's a driver error or something there ? i once had a really nasty bug related to gigabyte usb boost driver that gave bsod on windows start randomly with out any pattern.

When you say “2nd attempt” do you mean like you are powering up your rig, get bsod, press reset and then it works? In that case it remind a voltageish issue, are you overclocking? if so then how? auto/manual ? you should also try to disable everything on your mb (bluetooth, igpu, etc) and see if this changes something.

Which bsod are you getting ? do you have a minidump ? which other info can you share about your annoying bug (sorry, its not really your bug, its just a figure of speech laughingsmiley.gif ) ? It's always something small and simple in the end haha drunken.gif

What's the size of your hd's of gaming ? and how much of data do they have on them ? , I know that this may not be the right time but why are you using raid 0 ? I love raid 1 but i never use 0 because it is too unstable and can cause huge data corruption even with tiny things such as power blackouts, do you know that you can use an extra ssd as cache drive and get ssd like performance from your hds without raid 0 ?

I, myself, don't even trust NTFS to hold my important data, i use linux ext4 on a separate linux machine just for that. I added 2 Intel lan cards to the onboard atheros and team the lans so they work together as 1 virtual lan card. Maybe you should rethink of your storage setup ? since apparently there are some bizarre bugs that makes your whole raid concept a bit complicated, giving to fact that intel doesn't do their work well this time... I have a good friend who is senior in intel... I will tell him to send an angry email to the crew who code this oprom haha biggrinsmiley.gif

Let me answer by parts:

1) I used a clean install;
2)I mean power up, the pc is off, and pushing the power button, all the process (boot) goes right but windows gets a bsod that only says:

"A require device isn't connected or can't be accessed .
error code: 0x000000e".

Windows also offers me options to repair (f8 and recover) but does not work.

If I push the reset button, windows loads. But if I shut down windows gets to that bsod again, just resetting passes the bsod

3) No overclokings. My power supply is from a good brand and gives 800 watts to supply my system.

4) I did not try to disable Bluetooth.
IGPU I do not use. I use an ATI 6870.

5) MY ssd is a 60 gigabytes and my array is made by 2 x 250 gigabytes of Samsung. I always used raid 0 for performance. Should I use raid 1, but should not I have 3 HDDs instead? I have a nobreak to avoid power failures. I have in the array 418 gigabytes stored and nearly 120 gigabytes free.

To sum up if you have any advises to give me about the storage and raids....thanks in advance.

PS: I 'll flash the bios again with the modded one but redo my array to see if the problem keeps. I just have to backup 400 gigas instead.

If you have a nobreak and a good psu then you are safe to go on raid 0 indid, but you have to be carful to not let it screw itself up.

0x000000e is related to the loader of windows (boot manager or whatever) failing to find the boot partition, in your case i think that the raid mess it up somehow OR that your boot manager got corrupted somehow.

You can try to start in windows recovery (from windows usb/dvd boot, repair your computer and recovery console) and then try to reinstall the boot manager so it recreates the partition indexes and settings for your rig.

Check this - http://www.programmersheaven.com/user/Kmadhav/blog/4343-How-to-Solve-BCD-Corruption-in-Windows-7/

You can also try to install a boot manager of non-microsoft (non-microsoft solutions are mostly the best ones for microsoft related bugs haha), check this thread... , this user did an interesting type of ****up for his rig, the easy solution to his issue was to install easybcd as his bootmanager - http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/122982-win-boot-mgr-windows-failed-start.html

Either way you can even try to use grub or a 'preset grub' that has an option to boot from whatever partition that you like (like in a linux rescue environment dvd/usb) to see if you can boot windows when you use something to chose the right boot partition for it.

When you reinstall windows on your ssd, did you format it ? if so did you just did a quick format or a fully recreation of the partition ? try to use chkdsk on the ssd's both windows and boot partition (to access the 100mb boot partition you have to use a recovery environment like hirens ubcd or recovery console from within the windows 7 boot usb/dvd).

Re-creating the raid as garikfox adviced seems like a wise idea as well because it also works around the same area of the problem .. check your partition settings and verify that its intact.

And goddamn backup your files!! protect your precious data because once it's lost, you will be sorry! if you lose your data then the whole performance increase you could have gained from a newer oproms will become irrelevant, remember that.

Hope this helps.. keep me posted..
