Just finished installing this MoBo, replacing my Z170 Deluxe, CPU and GPU (CPU an i7 9700 and GPU a EVGA 1080Ti Hybrid). I also installed 2 1TB M.2 in the DIMM.2.
Focused on the new drives I installed Windows 10 64bit on one of them and left the other to install programs and games.
After it was ready I then decided to re-plug in my 6 SATA drives, including the CD-rom and that's where my actual problem resides. From the 6 SATA ports on the MoBo only 3 access the HDD's; the other three are dead. If I swap the cables to the other HDD's they are then accessible, but the other 3 are not even recognised in the BIOS.
I have to be clear here; while getting the M.2 drives to work I fiddled with the bios till I got them to work, but I messed around with all the parameters so much, that I'm quite sure I messed it so much that now it is a miracle that at least it reads three of the six SATAs...
I have also updated the BIOS to the latest available for this MoBo, but my lack of experience is surely the cause of the three SATA ports I need.
Is there an easy way to recover them in a simple configuration move? Or maybe I need to install some extra drivers, not included in any of the downloads I took from ASUS webpage?
Any help will be much appreciated.
