gigabyte mb ga-z68ap-d3

Hi, Originally my mb was set to ide for the sata hdd.I had already installed w7,and edited the registry to allow ahci to be changed in the bios I rebooted the PC,then changed the pch sata controller mode to ahci

There was a problem with the OS not being detected,then the OS booted. Both HDD are detected .

Problem, When the PC boots,the post/bios screen states the following,have I done something wrong ???

Serial ata sata version iSRC 1.20 E

This version only supports HDD and cdrom drives Please wait this will take a few seconds

Then it list the ports and what device is attached.

Is this normal??

Please any help is appreciated

This is quite spooky,I have just swapped my Asus P67 mobo for a Gigabyte P67 mobo, for no other reason I won it so I thought I would see if it was any better than the Asus. I had the exact same problem as you and it took a bios update to sort it. From the original F1 to the latest F3. The problem has gone.

The "* This version supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives * Please wait. This will take few seconds. " message shows while the ICH is doing drive discovery, and checking whether any drives are assigned to RAID pairs; this is normal...

If you do not have raid or any ide drives attached then set to disabled
