Gigabyte GA-X58-UD5: Help with slow POST - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I have a UD5 and POST takes roughly 20 seconds on cold boot, and about 10 or so on a restart. I think it may just be whatever you have selected in BIOS, but at the same time, I don't have 6 sticks of RAM, but only 3 for 12 gigs... This is running in AHCI.

Hi,

I have just upgraded from a Asus maximus extreme x38 to a gigabyte UD7 rev 2 (Bios FA) and have the same issue as the OP its way slower to boot compared to my Asus motherboard.

the post takes ages does to much checking.

I have intel ICh10R set to Raid 0 for my Intel G2 SSDs and have set the sata3 to AHCI.

I have my HDD on 1st boot. it has a usb KVM switch connected to it so picks it up as a hub (which has the keyboard / mouse / Monitor usb hub -> Printer and speaker connected)

I will update the motherboard Bios to latest FC version, try the quick boot utility and change the ACHI to IDE on the sata3 ports and see how it goes.

any other suggestions.

I'm pretty sure this is why. I removed 3 sticks and it cut ~10 seconds off POST time.

Enabling BIOS quick boot will help.
Also, don't set your HDD to first boot. Change it to your SSD.
For me, FC POST took longer than FA, FB, and FC6.

Same (similar) board, mine usually takes ~ 20 seconds to POST.

Seems a pretty slow POSTing mobo to be honest, although not sure why yours was SO slow, 35 seconds sounds more reasonable, but still a bit slow. Not sure what to change though for it, spent ages trying to reduce my POST time but nothing made it faster from what I had it on originally...

How many internal and external peripherals do you have plugged in to get 20 seconds?

Yeah, UD5 rev 1 and slow post...
Did you enable "quick boot" in Bios?

P.S. My bad... i did notice you already had it active! ...
But UD5 has a slow boot compared to Asus P6T Dlx for example.

Try disabling your G_Sata controller. They will be working but without onboard controller, they will be normal Sata ports...

It helped mine

I have the latest FC now upgraded from FA and still the same,

my first boot is already SSD (raid 0).

my old asus maximux x38 + Q6600 + 4gb corsair ram took 18sec from cold boot to functional windows 7.

this one is around 35sec.
