Dear All,

Please help!!!!!!! - Any advise would be appreciated.

I have just built my new pc with the following components:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 S775, 2.13Gh - Processor
Asrock CONROEXFIRE-ESATA2, i945P - Motherboard
(2X1GB) Corsair Value Select DDR 2 4200mhz - RAM
160 Gb Western Digital WD1600JS - Hard drive
Samsung Black 16x DVD-ROM (40x CD-R
Samsung SH-S182DB/BEBN Black 18x18
1.44Mb Sony Black Floppy Disk Drive
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Enermax CS-527 Black Midi Tower Case
430w Seasonic S12-430 aPFC PSU Silent (Upgraded to 530Watt)
Leadtek WinFast DTV1000 T Digital Tv

1394 GUID are invalid in both CMOS and Flash!

I have reconnected all components, reset the motherboard, cleared CMOS and flashed BIOS including loading the latest BIOS update.

I have also attempted to disable to Firewire in BIOS but there is no command available, this is the advice from my manufactures. They will also swap the motherboard if i wish due to poss fault. (Most likely a motherboard fault).

I am certain I have connected all components correctly but when I boot I get this message.

Any ideas?

If there's no place to disable the Firewire, then I'd have to send the board back. There's a problem with the identification of the 1394 device because of it's ID number.

You could try resetting the BIOS to default (unplug it and then remove the CMOS battery)

Or, you could try a BIOS flash to see if that would remedy it.
