Hi, This is my first post on the forum, so go easy with me. I have just built a new machine all seemed ok, but I have discovered the BIOS doesn't detect the Segate ST3808110AS SATA drive after a cold boot. If I hit reset or Cntrl ALT Del it boots normally, but not from a first cold boot. At a cold boot the Bios seems to be looking for quite a while, gives up & reports no Boot drive press any key. If I ctrl alt delete all is fine and Windows XP boots normally. I can restart Windows, all is ok. If I do a complete shutdown and power up it sits for quite a while then reports no boot drive found. The motherboard is a Gigabyte K8VM800M rev 2.0. I have flashed the BIOS to the latest version (RD), no difference. I have looked under advanced settings for a timing function for the HDD to try extending the detection time, there is none. The SATA setting is set to IDE not RAID. I have tried using Failsafe settings, no good. I inserted a link on the Seagate drive to slow it from 3GB/s to 1.5GB/s still no good. I've run out of ideas, can any one help? Any response or ideas would be much appreciated.
