I replaced my motherboard and installed an Agility ssd for my boot drive. Every couple weeks, the computer won't boot. I go into the bios under "hard drive boot order" and find that one of my other hard drives is at the top of the hit parade. It even put my external drive as the boot drive one time. As soon as I switch my ssd to boot drive of course it boots up properly. Any ideas why it's doing this? Thanks.

What's the manufacturer and model of the mobo, you may need to check to see if there is a bios flash available for it. Is it under warranty? If it is then call the manufacturer and tell them what is going on.

If it's under warranty then I would call or email Gigabyte and ask them. This way you won't risk voiding the warranty or breaking the mobo.
