After upgrading I reformatted my PC. In the UEFI bios I have always seen "Windows Boot Manager" with a UEFI ribbon across the top.
The issue is that now with the 6870 after the bios screen, the cursor that blinks usually just once in the upper left corner before loading windows now blinks when windows is loading (at the splash screen). It blinks 3 to 5 times then stays solid. Before installing my realtek audio driver it wouldn't stay solid - it would blink three more times after the normal one blink (where you hit F8) and disappear.
Is this something to be concerned about? I am using the sata 6.0gbs cables with my sata dvd-rw drive and the 3.0gbs Sata drive. Should I use the older sata cables that came with my last motherboard (a8n-sli premium)?
