I have recently had to buy a new SSD a lovely 120GB Intel Cherryville after my old SSD decided to die on me. I had an existing data drive with my files, artwork on.
The problem is when I boot up it tries to load normally (a few cursors blinks on a black screen) and then dumps me onto the bios. I have specified in the bios that I want it to boot windows from my new intel drive, but the problem persists. I believe the problem started from the changing of the boot drive. The bios also shows the data drive in a list of plugged in devices but does not show it in the boot 'order' options in EZ mode.
The strange thing is the only way I can get Windows to boot properly is to choose my data drive as the boot device in the temporary boot choice menu. Windows is 100% on my Intel SSD though...?
Another strange item in the EZ mode boot order menu is the inclusion of the DVD drive which was certainly not there before.
I should mention that I did try try and fix my old corrupt SSD in the registry and this could be contributing to the odd behaviour of my data drive and bios settings.
-I have an ASUS z87k Motherboard.
-Windows 7 home 64bit.
So if you could specifically advise me on how to remedy this boot problem, I would be very grateful.
