xtremis Posted November 17, 2010 Share Posted November 17, 2010 I just wanted to share an odd problem with an F120. My system was hanging on boot (before BIOS splash screen), after I've installed and enabled AHCI on my F120. For a couple of times, I've powered the system on and off, trying to make it boot properly. Eventually, it would pick up, but not after quite some power cycles. I've tried to "troubleshoot" this issue a bit, and I unplugged my Sitecom USB Hub (with external power). I've tried leaving it on, with no power, but the system would still "lock up". Only after I unplug the USB cable between the hub and the computer, I was able to boot properly each and every time. I have these connected to the hub: - XBox 360 Controller; - Logitech USB Headset (with microphone) - plain Microsoft Mouse I've only noticed this after enabling AHCI (I had the disk in IDE mode for a while before changing it), so my guess is that AHCI is, in some way, "colliding" with one of the peripherals or the hub itself (I haven't tried to unplug the stuff one by one). I'm just sharing this as there might be other people having similar problems and the whole "unplug the USB stuff" might seem unexpected (it sure was to me, I was blaming my MB for the whole issue :laughing:). If anyone is interested, I can test it more, to try to isolate which component is messing things up. Cheers! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
