Yes, I'm using the latest 0902 firmware from Asus. Thanks for the info on the other threads. While not exactly like my issue it helps to know I'm not nuts, lol.
I assume from your last statement you sent off your mobo for a replacement? Maybe I should wait and see how that works for you before I decide to do the same. Could you post your findings when you do get it back and have it up and running? Thanks, Jon.
My mobo is due sometime this week, maybe Wed or Thurs. The tracking doesn't show it shipped out yet but a label was created... I will update you after I receive & test it.
And before you RMA, you should know, it will take upwards of 23 calendar days including shipping per RMA. I have lost over 40 days + so far waiting on 2 RMAs.
Zenith RMAs take longer as not that many repair techs available to repair it and they don't have the parts or components readily avail as it's a new mobo and due to lack of ample replacements available at the repair facility.
So if you are going to RMA (and you should as that mobo's startup is flawed), make sure you have a backup pc in hand unless you don't mind waiting around for 23 or more days.
But by the way how did you set your 2 drives up? Is there a chance it may be the drives them selves? I see one M.2 and one sata 3, which m.2 slot did you use (dimm.2 card?)? Which one is the boot drive?
