Can someone help me get a hard drive working on my GA-EP45-UD3P, basically I have two hard drives in raid 0, in the 0 and 1 sata slots, and I have a third hard drive that is connected via IDE. They all are working happily, until I plugin a 4th harddrive via sata. No matter which sata port I plug the 4th harddrive into I get this when I start up:


I cant get into the bios and it never boots, just sits at that screen forever.

How can I fix this? I know its just a wrong setting somewhere, im just not sure which one.

It seems like an incompatibility, which could be solved by updating to the latest BIOS.

If you have the latest BIOS, or an update doesn't solve the problem you should try some debugging: unplug the PATA HDD and see if the rig starts with 3x SATA HDDs. If it starts without the PATA drive, the problem is some incompatibility between the ICH10 and the PATA controller; but if it doesn't start, it may be something wrong with the Sata hard drive settings in the BIOS.

I tried what you said but nothing has changed, I probably have one of my BIOS Settings wrong

Here are some of my BIOS settings:

>Integrated Peripherals
SATA RAID/AHCI MODE [RAID]
SATA Port0-3 Native Mode [Enabled] (tested Enabled/Disabled didn't change)
Onboard SATA/IDE Device [Enabled] (tested Enabled/Disabled didn't change)
Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode [RAID/IDE]
