4.2 install on Gigabyte EP45-UD3P - Yellow SATA Ports


Recommended Posts



I had originally posted in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1016

but I figured I might be better off starting my own thread instead of posting in one that is [solved].



Like the OP from the first thread, I also have a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. For the initial install of 4.2 I had to put my drive on one of the two purple ports. If I used one of the 6 yellow, the install would complete, but it would hang when I would reboot. ( If memory serves me, it would get stuck when looking for AHCI drives during bootup.) Is this something I'm doing wrong in the BIOS settings?


When I installed using the drive plugged into one of the purple ports, install and startup would go without a hitch.


I only have one drive in the system (just as a test).


I would Like to use the yellow ports so I'm not limited to two drives in raid.



-Any help would be appreciated. I'm very new to RAID but we have multiple synology DS1812+ at work.
