Rampage III Extreme X58 Information thread - Page 77

post #761 of 1800
Can anyone here tell me what happens when you disconnect all SATA cables from your motherboard and then boot it up? When I disconnect all SATA devices and cables and try to boot it up, I still get the same old POST system lockup with the same "initializing USB controllers...done" message over and over again.
Shouldn't it say something along these lines: "Unable to locate boot device. Please insert boot device and press a key..." ??
