Computer wont boot after BIOS update
Apr 13, 2013, 9:50 AM
I just updated the BIOS of my Maximus IV Extreme-Z using the EZ Flash tool on the motherboard.
Now I get the message:
Adapter 1 disks information AHCI mode
No disk detected
on start-up. I have my boot SSD and some storage HDDs, and all of them show up in the boot override menu in my BIOS, but when selected the computer restarts and the same message appears.
I have tried a large combination of settings, but without luck.
System spec: (if that matters)
Maximus IV Extreme-Z
4x2GB Corsair Dominator 1333MHz
Corsair Force GT SSD
2x2GB ASUS 670's Direct CUII (standard clock)
Can anyone think of a way to solve this problem?
I run Windows 7 64bit OS

Have you tried setting SATA to IDE?

Yes, that didn't work either. :-(

Try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for few minutes). Connect only the SSD to one of the Intel SATA ports. See if it does boot.

I tried the reset jumper (don't know if that the right term) and that didn't do anything either.
Will removing the battery have any effect that the reset jumper didn't?
Of course I'll try it anyways

A "desperate" option would be using the flashback for flashing the BIOS with the previous version.
