BIOS 39 for DZ68BC is now available.
According to the release notes, the changes are
• Fixed issue where hard disk drive is not recognized when SATA mode is set to AHCI.
• Updated processor support.
• Updated VBIOS.
So I'm not overly hopeful that it fixes the other issues we have been experiencing (but I suppose the last two items are pretty vague and could mean just about anything)
My board is still in its box, where its resided since I fixed my PC build with a Gigabyte board (that worked!) .... The question is it it worth dusting it off and building a second new PC from it and my other spare parts.....
Thank you for your replies. Now I'm also an ex-DZ68BC-user. It's a pity. Well equipped board, but unusable with Ivy Bridge CPU's. The new one is a Z77-based Asus, and all the problems are immediately gone. I can even run the Win7 installation from the P965 system without problems.
Thank you for your advise.
Can I ask you what board you migrated to? I am also experiencing a lot of trouble since upgrading my DZ68BC from a Core-i 2500K to a Core-i 3770. It is presently dead and I am awaiting any helpful ideas on how to resuscitate it.
When you moved to the Asus board, did you do a clean installation of Windows or were you able to 'upgrade' it or even just run the C drive right out of the Intel board? I really don't want to completely rebuild my system drive.
