[Solved] EX58-UD4P won't boot with eSATA drives attached
My computer will not go pass recognizing the drives after posting with my two eSATA drives attached. I've tried it with both the ICH10 SATA ports and the Gigabyte GSATA2 ports. The computer will boot if the drives are unplugged. I can use them fine after the system is finished loading. I've only tried the F8 and the F10K bios. I can boot the computer with the eSATA drives attached via a USB 2.0 cable. Appreciate any help on this problem. My computer consists of the following:
i7 Core 920 6GB Cosair ram Gigabyte EX58-UD4P Nvidia GTX 260 Creative X-Fi Champion Fata1ty PCI-E Seagate ST3320620AS 300GB SATA HD Maxtor 7Y250M0 230GB SATA HD Seagate Freeagent Pro 1TB eSATA/USB HD Seagate FreeAgent Xtreme 1.5TB eSATA/USB HD Intel Matrix Storage Console 188.8.131.523 Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I was able to fix the problem by using the Seagate Monitor. This will only work if the drives are connected via USB. Changing the power settings to "never".
