Hi, I built a PC some time ago, it worked perfectly until about a week ago where it suddenly turned itself off (all on it's own) & when I restarted it, it said 'Reboot and select a proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device' (or something very similar).
6gb OCZ Reaper (1600Mhz)
Asus Rampage III Extreme
3x Samsung F1 (1TB), 3x Samsung F4 (2TB)
Seasonic S12 (600W)
The thing that is of interest is that if I boot up with just the OS drive plugged in everything is fine. It's only when I plug in a 2nd sata drive that I get the message 'Reboot and select a proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device'.
Anyone come across this exact problem before? Any possible solutions?
PS. My 1st guess was the sata controller is shot, would flashing the BIOS help this any? (ie any way to repair sata controllers?)
