I have an mSATA drive installed in a DH77DF where I've installed Fedora 19 (successfully, by all appearances). However, though the system seems to see the drive just fine, I can't get it to boot. I just get the message:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key
Can anyone confirm whether this board supports booting from a GPT-format mSATA drive? (Just in case that's the problem.)
Branden, based on the fact that we do not have support for any Linux flavor, if you have any question regarding this motherboard and Operating system combination, you would need to forward your inquiry to Linux* distribution support community for further assistance.
I would like to inform you that booting from a GPT or an MBR partition will be define by the OS.
If you created a GPT partition and then installed Fedora, I would recommend you to format the drive and reinstall the OS, without any partition.
Here is a thread that I found just in case you need addition information /thread/43629 https://communities.intel.com/thread/43629
