Windows 7: BIOS Issues

07 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Just out of curiosity, when you originally flashed your bios,
were you overclocked by any chance?

You shouldn't flash while OC'd because issues can happen.
If so, you may need to clear CMOS, and reflash.

Just a thought.

It is a pain as I now have to wait till the computer posts then reset it before it will boot into windows !!!
It could be trying to recover the secondary BIOS. I had something similar happen and I had to wait a long time (like 20-30 minutes) before it recovered. I don't know if that's normal, but it happened to me. You might try re-flashing using all safety procedures. Load optimized before and after. Read this before you flash a gigabyte BIOS.

BIOS and AHCI Issues
A little while ago, I noticed that my motherboard's BIOS was configured to use IDE instead of AHCI. I don't know if I installed Windows 7 while it was in IDE mode and didn't realize it or if the BIOS just switched it by itself (can it do that)? I've read there's a way to switch it back to AHCI mode...
