Multiple cold boots before sata drive detected

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

My problem is that on cold booting my hack, no drives are detected in BIOS. I have hdd in SATA0 and DVD-ROM in SATA1. If I let the boot sequence go on and then restart a couple of times the drive will be detected. Even then the first boot with the drive detected will crash showing the circle with diagonal through it. One last boot see the hack in fully functional state.


My SATA is set to AHCI and I have tried it in both IDE and legacy, but neither will even boot. I have even tried a 10 second delay but still no luck. Why does this only happen when cold?
