Desktop Board DX79TO 2 USB 3.0 Rear ports keep giving problems even after installing the fix

Jump to solution

Hi,

I recently build a Windows 8 Pro x64 PC Based on the Intel Desktop Board DX79TO, but even after installing the available fix for the 2 USB 3.0 ports at the rear of the PC i keep getting the same problems as before.

The ports work like they should, except that I keep getting the same problem at start-up everytime there is a device still attached to the port.

  • "System hangs on POST code 58 for one minute if any device is attached to USB 3.0 ports, and then continues the boot process."

Even though start-up from USB is placed UNDER those of the internal HDD's in the boot sequence.

Does anyone know how to fix this, or is someone familiar with the problem at all?

Would be nice if I shouldn't have to disconnect my 3TB Mybook 3.0 everytime I want to boot my pc...

Many Thanks

Sven

Sven,

On BIOS, can you try disabling the "Boot USB devices first" under the "BOOT" tab.

Please let me know the results.

Just Tried that as well. Same result: the PC keeps hanging when the Mybook is attached to the USB 3.0 ports on boot.

I'm sorry Sylvia.

Svenator,

If you plug the hard drive to a USB 2.0 port are you able to boot to Windows?

Please let me know.

Yes, I tried that and it continues to Windows, but I'm not gonna hook my 3.0 HDD up to a 2.0 port which has 1/10th of the possible speed if you don't mind me... It doesnt solve the problem. I can also boot from the USB 2.0 ports using a flashdrive or something alike.

Thanks for all this information.

One last question, do you have UEFI enable on BIOS, under the "Boot" Tab.

Please check it out. If not, please enable it and try again.

Let me know if it worked.

Tried that as wel, and doesnt work either... Though even without the MyBook attached that enlarges the boot time enormously ...

I'm sorry

Svenator,

If the work around did not fix your issue, we would need to replace the motherboard.

So, I recommend you to get in touch with our Warranty Department so they can help you to replace the unit: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport

 

Regards.
