Gigabyte Z77-DS3H Using mSata for Os Need To Understand a few settings?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got this up and running today as I finally got a CPU for it I have a Intel 120 msata I installed the Os win 7x64 Ult ran fast even for an i3-2100.
I see what I been missing I was very glad I got this! I could see my storage Drive in Device Manager but not in my Computer so I went into the Bios and noticed that the Sata Port it was connected to was disabled I enabled it rebooted and There it was my drive was in My Computer Great!

Then I installed the USB drivers and upon reboot computer will not boot tried everything I do not understand what my settings should be for this especially all the legacy Uefi settings. and some other setting I cannot remember but It was working great I reset the bios still same message reboot to a proper boot device. I even used f12 to get to the boot menu and it would not go to it to select my intel boot drive. I`m thinking I`ll just reinstall Windows again if it lets me but Could Someone please point me to some understanding of all these bios settings!

Thanks I am not to great with this Uefi I also have an MSI P67A-GD55-B3 and I have no problems with this machine this other one is a bit confusing I am sure eventually I will figure it out but right now I just want to use it for awhile before I sell the thing in a week there is no reason for me to keep this board if I cannot adjust the V Core on the CPU for overclocking so I will sell this with the i3-2100 in a new Tower and PSU I just purchased and get a better Board for my i5-2500k System.

Try moving your data drive to another port. Some times when you use the msata port it will disable a sata port. Kinda like either or but not both.

^this.

I have this board in a box at home somewhere. When I get off work, i'll check out the manual and see what port is disabled. But that's definitely what's happening. For what it's worth, if you're only using one spinning disk for storage, you could move it to a SATA2 port and eliminate all doubt.

Just checked the manual (pdf on giga's website), and it tells me I was . . .WRONG! The mSATA port is SATA2.

Seems the solution is similar, however. Just move the physical storage to a different SATA2 port. Post with results, please!

Thanks for all the replies I sold that Board and moved so I have not been around reight now I got that msata adapter msata to 2.5" drive and hooked it straight to a Sata III Port it is fast I wanted it faster I do not understand how to get Intel Rapid Storage working though it is fast er than anything I had before for boot unless maybe I install Win X on a sata II port with a spining drive now I need a good 3TB drive on a Budget that is at a good price for storage of files to get these other three drives combined into one and yet I have 15 years of data to preserve My daughters videos growing up I just do not have the time to search through millions of files right now I am way too busy to take time and when i do a little I always forget where I left off. any suggestions of a good storage drive that one partition will be used for programs I do not use too much. The msata drive I have is an Intel Lincolncrest 525 series works great so far! thumb.gif
