Updated to ASROCK Z170 Extreme4. Getting BSOD on startup now

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just installed an Asrock Z170 Extreme4 today. Upon plugging everything back in I turned on the my computer to find that shortly after the Windows logo appears I get a BSOD with the error code 0x0000007b. From what I understand this is because my SSD is formatted with IDE(?) and the new motherboard is trying to use AHCI(?) I've seen a recommendation to simply switch from ACHI to IDE via the BIOS but the only option in BIOS that I have are AHCI and Raid.

Please tell me there's a fix for this. I really don't want to have to erase my SSD, or better yet plug my old motherboard back in to get the data off my drive.

Well, I have no idea. For personal interest I dug up the manual from ASROCK http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z170%20Extreme4/?cat=Manual.

If you look up "IDE Mode", there is only one search result, it says, "AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) supports NCQ and other new features
that will improve SATA disk performance but IDE mode does not have these advantages."

I guess it means that there is an IDE mode somewhere hidden. Look harder.

Your new motherboard might not support IDE mode.

I checked the manual for the Z170 here: http://66.226.78.22/downloadsite/Manual/Z170%20Extreme4.pdf
The only mention of IDE mode I see seems to be worded like an excuse as to why it's not an option in the settings.
Here's a screenshot of that bit. http://i.imgur.com/tRmUeLe.png

Compare that to your old motherboard's manual: http://66.226.78.22/downloadsite/Manual/Z68%20Extreme3%20Gen3.pdf
In this one there are many references to IDE mode.

So after a few tries to get everything working my computer decided to stop turning on altogether. I switched back to my old motherboard and processor and everything powered on just fine. However with the new board and cpu the computer wouldn't even power on. So I think I've narrowed it down to either the CPU or motherboard. I've ordered replacements for both (Won't be going with ASROCK again) and will be returning the faulty ones.

You're right as well. It seems that the 100 Series motherboards don't "support" Windows 7. You have to screw around with some of the drivers to get it to even install. Had to order a second ODD just to be able to install W7
