Been having issue's with this , my back up drive is on SATA port 3 , no problems for weeks then all of a sudden BSOD and reboot , when the machine reboots , I see SATA port 3 has an error , like it's not connected.
I wiggle the SATA cable on the HDD and wham it boots up no problemo , weeks go by then same thing happens again.
I changed the SATA cable today , I am hoping that is it but , just like before I can see SATA port 3 lag for a split second at boot up then it is up and running , no problems so far but I have a feeling it's just a matter
I do have SATA port # 2 available which will be my next step if this occurs again.
I have search the net for this problem with this board and only came up with one hit with these symptoms , Abit forums say update bios or RMA the board , the guy RMAed his.
Any suggestions ........... ?
