ASUS P8P67 BOOT_DEVICE_LED is solid red - Page 3

Okay, assembled outside of the case, the machine makes it into windows. I'm able to log in, nothing blows up.

Short in the case?

Yep, classic short.
Check the standoffs, as well as the I/O shield (which is supposed to reduce EFI or something), and also check the case jumpers. check for foreign objects where there shouldn't be foreign objects. Check for spare cords that managed to snake underneath the board.

Also, what MANY people dont know, is that an exposed molex can ALSO short out inside a motherboard. Very rare, but it can happen.

well, I pulled it to pieces and rebuilt it (not a fun task. my back is killing me and im so exhausted) set up a different cable managemnt system that somehow ended up using one less molex power cable than the ld setup. eh.

however, though verything now boots properly, the mahine wont load windows, its just stuck at the animated windows splash screen... ive been staring at this for about 20 minutes now.

reformat and reinstal time?

Ow...just forget about it and get some sleep. You probably have something not connected that was connected, or there's another short somewhere.

Pull it out tomorrow and watch it load windows.

You're going to have to really find out what's going on with the case.
Keep in mind you could also have a short on the motherboard itself, and putting it in the case and causing flexing might be making it go out.

Could even be HSF on too tightly...

I'm just guessing...

I'm thinking windows was corrupted somewhere in the rebuild. Although it worked after assembling the system outisde the case, once it went back in, it died totally (stuck on splash screen). Wouldn't work even after removing it from the case again. I just reinstalled windows, and will be attempting to restore a system image I created a few months ago, after my last install.

Well, it's nice to know windows was perfectly fine and I had some other issue. Two restarts after a fresh install, and I'm stuck with the goddamn splash screen again. I swear to god if this POS isn't fixed by midnight, it's going in the pool

So after 6 hours of work today, here's where I stand.

With just a DVD drive and my SSD, the computer works perfectly fine in and outside the case. Once I get up to 7 hard drives, the computer slows down immensely, taking about 10 times longer than normal to load into windows, and with lag spikes every 10 to 15 seconds that make using the computer almost impossible (CPU usage spikes in conjunction with the massive lag, but as far as I can see, absolutely no process is using more than 1% of the CPU). If I connect my 8th hdd, a 2Tb, the computer hangs at the windows splash screen. This happens both in and out of the case.

New motherboard?

So I just did a full system rebuild on the floor (on paper, it's safe). Everything except case fans is hooked up (CPU cooler, video card, all RAM, PCIe RAID card, and all 9 Sata devices).

Although it's a bit slow in starting up, it seems to work.

What does that mean?

The culprit seems to be my new 2Tb hdd. As soon as it's plugged in, get stuck at splash screen.

Is that even possible?
