Asus P9X79 WS with IDE detect error on initial power on using Samsung 840 EVO SSDs
(2) Samsung 840 EVO SSDs in initial 6GB SATA drives, Blu-ray writer on 3Gb SATA. This is a new build using P9X79 WS mobo. Initial power on reveals blue LED on DIAG_HDD and Q code A2 - IDE Detect. I have seen others with this dilema. What to do?

Have you gone into the BIOS and set the SATA to AHCI?
I spoke with Asus experts today and updated the most recent BIOS. 4505. I have tried the two SSD drives in IDE, RAID, and ACHI. No dice.
