  1. MB Bios update - now PC wont boot with areca 1260 plugged in I flashed my Gigabyte x99-ud4 motherboard bios a couple of days ago and since then my system wont boot with the Areca 1260 plugged in. It wont display any output to monitor and is non responsive to any keystroke. Ive tried: Rolling back to the origonal BIOS (F6) Upgrading to the latest BIOS (F12) And everything in between (F6-12) Clearing the CMOS Tried swapping the raid card to the first PCI-e slot (in case it had issues on a x4 slot) Removed the BBU Im looking for another stick of RAM to test with and another system but am starting to get desperate (16tb offline until I can fix this) Any help would be much appreciated System Gigabyte x99-ud4 rev1 (Current BIOS F11) WIn 8.1pro (installed on revo 256gb pci ssd) areca 1260 6x4tb in RAID6
  2. My motherboard recently died and I just got a temporary replacement while I RMA my motherboard. Anyways, I have 1 SSD and 4 Western Digital Black hard drives, along with a Blu-Ray burner. My new temporary motherboard (an Asrock Z97 Anniversary) is not seeing my 4 Western Digital Black hard drives at all in the UEFI BIOS. The drives do not show up at all. I've tried swapping the SATA cables, swapping power supplies, swapping power cables, and tried mixing up the connectors. There are 6 SATA 3 headers on the board. Apparently the board is known to prioritize SATA headers 0 and 1, but when I swap them around, the hard drives still are not recognized. Resetting the CMOS with the jumper did not do anything either. A dying motherboard could not kill 4 hard drives could it? I think it has to do with the motherboard itself? Is this a BIOS issue? OR something else? I don't have a spare system on hand to test the hard drives, which complicates things somewhat. This guy here had a very similar issue: Did I get a bad motherboard?
