BIOS 0064 for DZ77GA-70K breaks secondary SATA

Jump to solution

I installed BIOS GAZ7711H.86A.0064 on an Intel DZ77GA-70K yesterday. Now, the secondary Marvell SATA ports only work sometimes (more on that later), and I can no longer select a Secondary SATA Mode (see attached images; the menu is gone). The Samsung SSD Magician utility confirms that the drive attached to the Marvell controller (when it works) is not using AHCI.

Furthermore, when I plug all of the workstation's drives into the motherboard (there are six total, including the optical drive), the drives plugged into the Marvell SATA ports will not mount. Windows detects that there is an issue, and when I troubleshoot it, there is a "Code 12: This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use." This was not a problem under the BIOS that shipped with the board.

Hello CJP,

The BIOS version that fixed issue where drive icon for Marvell* controller is missing is the version 0063.

You would need to do a BIOS recovery in order to install this version.

If you need additional assistance please contact our Technical support department.

That's weird. My issues with the Marvell controller have been resolved *since* this BIOS update. Did you try resetting the BIOS to default settings after the update? Completely powering off the PC and then turning it back on? Are the latest Marvell controller drivers installed? What version of Windows are you running? I'm running Windows 8.
