I moved my discussion on my Maximus VI Formula board to start a new thread for some help.
My issue stems from the fact that Windows will not boot unless I go into the Bios to physically select my boot drive from the Advanced screen in UEFI. Currently my only drive that is now hooked up after removing my optical drive to install Windows is my Samsung SSD 840 Pro. Nothing seems wrong with any of my drives or fans. My SSD is working correctly. Audio, video works well. All drivers were downloaded from the supplied DVD and installed with no issues. The few things I have installed work great. My Device Manager in Windows shows the proper drive and is partitioned correctly. My drive is in Intel Port 1. I have tried other cables and ports they all work correctly. I can get into Windows but I must always boot from Bios as my SSD Boot drive does not get saved after I exit out of bios. This is an all new build - bios is holding me up. I have spoken with ASUS Support and they believe the Bios Chip is not working correctly after they ran me thru a few minor checks. In any case it would seem that UEFI should be able to save my boot drive so that during boot-up Windows appears. This is not the case as I must always go into UEFI and physically select the drive from the BOOT (F8) tab and only then it will go into Windows - there is no other way at this time.
