Re: Troubleshooting a bootup error
Yes, I changed the SATA cables out (and even rearranged them on the motherboard so that, instead of the DVD being slave to the first HDD, the second HDD is now slave and the DVD is on its own channel) but it does the same thing. This time I got almost completely through the install; it was on the last step, then blue screened and rebooted (and, again, the HDDs weren't showing up, so I had to shut down completely and then boot up).
Could it be a problem with the SATA controller, since I seem to lose all SATA functionality when it errors out and reboots (it's so fast, I don't get to see the error message on the BSoD)? Is that controlled by the BIOS, and would/could it be fixed by flashing it? If so, how can I get Q-Flash to see the USB drive?
I don't have another power supply to test with.
The only card in this box is the GPU, which is PCI-E. No standard PCI cards. Think that might still be an issue?
Again, thank you for your help! Would rep you more, but I have to spread some around....
