Hey guys,

I've been trying to get my new computer build working but I have encountered several issues when trying to boot the computer.

Before putting everything inside my case, I tested the motherboard + CPU + 1 stick of ram to make sure everything was working. I had issues in the past where I had to remove everything once I had things mounted.

Everything seemed to work and I got into the BIOS and looked like everything was good.

I mounted it in the case with the same configuration and I was able to get into the BIOS again. So I thought everything must be ok.

Fast forward a couple hours later after I finish plugging everything in, I try to turn it on but it just gets into this boot loop.

Turn on > Fans spin for a couple seconds > turns off > repeat. This just kept going on and on and I wasn't exactly sure what was going on.

I started to unplug components and when I only had the Mobo + CPU + 2 sticks of ram in I was able to get into the BIOS.

I plugged things in one at a time and when I plugged in my SSD it would work.. but when I added another drive I would start getting the A2 Debug message on my board.

I would continually get this A2 debug message and I am not sure what to do to get it to work.

I have updated my BIOS to the latest ones and it is still not working.

Could this be an issue with my PSU? I really hope it's not the MOBO..

My System:
i7 3770k
CoolerMaster 212 Evo
MSI M77 MPower
16GB DDR3 Ram
7870PCS+ Tahiti LE
Corsair HX650 PSU

Thanks and any help is greatly appreciated!

Do you get the error message with only the "other" drive plugged in, ie. no SSD?

Do your current BIOS settings for HDD match what was set in the BIOS of the computer that the "other" drive came out of?
