So I'm throwing a new machine together for my father in law. i7-2600k w/ an Asus P67 board (http://ca.asus.com/en/Motherboards/Inte ... ifications
). The board has 2x Intel SATA3, 2x Marvel Sata3, 4x Intel Sata2.
The Corsair Force 3 SSD is running without issue. The 1TB Segate Barracuda however is a total PITA. Of the 3 times I was able to get it detected the system hung trying to initialize the drive in Windows. I've now gotten the drive to work (aside from 1 boot where it didn't...) on the Marvel in IDE mode. I was able to run a long test in Seatools without issue. On my own machine it was detected no prod (AHCI AMD system), short test in Seatools passed.
SO...what's the deal with this P67 chipset?! I feel like such a n00b with a problem like this. Such a simple setup here!
