I have an INTEL Motherboard (DP45SG).

The problem is none of the external USB (i have 3) are recognized on boot-up.

My work-around is to allow windows to load, log-in and then disconnect and reconnect the drives and windows will recognize the drives and all is good. This work-around sucks!

Has anyone experienced this problem?

If so, what was the solution?

This should be a locked solution as I am sure it is occurring all over the world with this configuration.

See if usb devices are enabled in bios. Just out of curiosity are these connected directly to the onboard connectors or a usb hub?

updating your bios is your best bet
