    Ooops , of what ? what is the Main Bios Version?

    I would probably hook the HDDs up on port 0 and 1 and CD on 5 , incase you want to add another HDD in the future, not sure if it will help with boot speed or not?

    Well this is the screen Ive been complaining about all along, since it didnt exist before. those few seconds on startup are probably more than whatever benefit Im getting from AHCI.

    Ohhh yes , I thought Mystere and I covered that earlier...... you turned on AHCI so yes it is completely normal , it has to search for the attached devices and then loads them into the main bios.

    is it the X58 or X58A UD3R you have? I have a version 2 X58A-UD3R

    OK last Bios for that MB was FK in 2012

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-EX58-UD3R (rev. 1.6)


    I am surprised you have such an old Driver in Windows 10 shown though.... maybe someone at M$ finally smartened up and realized 13.5 was corrupting multiple HDDs under Raid on older Intel Chipsets like ICH10 or ICH9 or earlier.

    Yes, Windows thinks its "the best possible driver" for me. Im thinking updating the bios and going over all the drivers on the gigabyte page once Im done formatting and reinstalling windows. or if not atleast get the updated drivers.

    The Drivers on the GB site are no longer up to Date , you will find newer ones online .

    Just be VERY sure of the Model of Motherboard and it's revision , so you get the correct bios. Flash it from within the Bios , from a USB stick ,DONT do it from Windows no matter what the Website says.....it is not 100% reliable from Windows , so I would not risk it from Windows.

    I gotta head out for a few hrs but will check in tonite
