ASUS p8p67 Pro Boot device LED

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just built a PC based on ASUS p8p67 Pro and i7 2600k with Palit 1GB Nvidia GTX 460 and 8GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM.

On boot up I get a single bleep and the BOOT DEVICE LED stays on. I have one brand new SSD, one brand new SATA III HD and one brand new CD/DVD drive (and also a SATA II 'old' drive) in the system.

It doesn't matter whether I have none or any number of drives (in any combination) I cannot get the red HDD LED to go out.

I can get it to go out if I try to install windows 7 from the DVD - but that fails because I seem to be unable to format - and worse windows doesn't detect the SSD

There seems no problem (which many appear to have) with the RAM since I quite easily changed from 1333 to 1600 MHZ (and that warning light - or ones for the CPU and Graphics card go off after POST)

Am I missing something obvious here - or is there a fault with the MoBo? I have cleared CMOS too - to no avail

In the BOOT MENU besides the drives I've installed I also get a GENERIC STORAGE DEVICE listed - any idea what that is? Also it does not give the option of booting from the 'old' SATA II HD (it appears on the list at the bottom of the BOOT page but not in any of the BOOT OPTIONS list)

I have a similar problem with my P8P67 EVO board. Except I am able to boot under some configurations. If I plug my HDD into any of the Intel Sata ports I get the red boot_device_led and cannot enter bios or boot. The screen is garbled or stays black and the system reboots. However, I can boot fine if I plug the HDD into the Marvell (blue) ports instead. The weird thing is that my SSD (that i use as primary boot drive) and DVD drives work fine on the Intel ports, and the HDD also works fine on my old P35C-DS3R.

Did you have any luck getting your system to work?

LOL. Good luck with that. I went through 3 Asus Pro's. Only the first one worked for a total of about 12 hours of use.
