Hi there!

As mentioned in the Title, i´m owning a DFI DK P45 T2RS Turbo, which got a little bit trouble with my new HDD (WD Caviar Black 1,5 TB).

When i´m starting the Computer the first time at the Day (it´s reproducable after a few hours also), the BIOS show´s up a "Port reset error" Message for the Port with the new HDD on it.

When the Computer restarts on it´s own for the second time (or if i´m aboorting the first Boot with ctrl-alt-del), the HDD will be initialized without Problems.

Finding Info about that Problem was a little bit tricky, but in one Forum i´ve got the Info, that the Problems could be caused due to old Intel AHCI Option Rom Data.

Since i have no clue about BIOS editing, i would like to ask, if someone can help me with this Problem. Any help is very appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

I would start with updating your motherboard bios to the latest version. Where exactly did you find info about old ahci option rom info?
