Intel 750 PCIe AIC not booting Windows 10

Hello All

I have an Asus Z170 Deluxe motherboard with the latest BIOS installed.

I also have the Intel 750 AIC 400GB card.

I was able to install windows 10 onto the SSD without issue using a USB stick.

 

When the PC boots up I am able to get to the POST screen and there it will remain.

At that screen I am prompted to press "F1 to run setup" and when I do so I am able to get into the BIOS, wherein I can see the drive now listed as Windows Boot Manager (INTEL SSDPEDMW400G4)

 

It is listed as the first drive in the Boot Priority list. When I go into the "Boot Menu" I am able to click on the "Windows Boot Manager (INTEL SSDPEDMW400G4)" ssd and Windows 10 will boot to the desktop without issue.

 

I have install the latest drivers for each of the devices installed.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

The RovingBum,

 

 

We understand you were successful installing Windows® 10 onto your SSD, however it does not boot up unless you select the correct boot device.

We would like to let you know when you finish the installation of the OS in this SSD, the BIOS will detect it as "Windows Boot Manager", meaning this option needs to be your first boot device in BIOS.

 

 

Do you need to access BIOS eveytime to select the boot priority?

Hello,

The SSD is the first boot device in the boot priority list.

And I have to enter the BIOS to launch Windows even with the SSD being the first in the list.

The RovingBum,

If you need to enter BIOS everytime you boot up the system then there are a couple of things you can try:

- Load setup defaults in BIOS and make sure to set it up correctly again

 

- Contact Asus* support in order to ask for proper BIOS settings or for the situation you are having as we know the SSD will boot fine, but only when you choose it from the BIOS.

Please let us know.

My apologies for the late response.

This issue was never resolved. Again, the PC will not boot straight into windows at all. I have to log into the Asus BIOS where the Intel 750 SSD is seen, thereafter I have to select the drive from the BIOS menu to launch windows.

Extremely frustrating

Just a bit more information

- Load setup defaults in BIOS and make sure to set it up correctly again

Setup defaults were loaded multiple times with the same results.

- Contact Asus* support in order to ask for proper BIOS settings or for the situation you are having as we know the SSD will boot fine, but only when you choose it from the BIOS.

I contacted Asus 5 times and they had no answer for the issue except to say an Asus engineer would contact me. This never happened.

I had hoped there were new drivers or firmware available to resolve the issue and the same problem persists.

Issue solved!

In order to boot into Windows I had to press (F1) at the American Megatrends POST screen.

In the BIOS I simply disabled "F1 if Error"

Now the PC boots to windows without being stopped on the POST screen.

Thanks for all for your help.

The RovingBum,

 

 

We are glad to hear the situation was fixed, it was really strange you couldn't boot normally. Great that you found that specific option in your motherboard.

 

 

Have a nice day.
