    Exclamation GL502VS Bios 306 = no boot with secondary SATA SSD connected?

    Hello,

    I have updated the BIOS of my GL502vs to the v306 and it simply cannot boot anymore.
    Indeed, it's now freezing with the Republic of Gamers logo.

    After some investigations, I have discovered that this is the SSD (Samsung 860 EVO) connected on the SATA port that is causing this freeze (a mechanical HDD or nothing connected cause the system to boot normally).

    I have compare the logs of the v302 and the v306 BIOSes with AMIBCP and the only differences are some mentions of nvme settings).

    Are some GL502vs owners in the same case?

    sorry for the issues caused by bios.

    i would recommend you to reset the BIOS after every major upgrade of bios.

    or downgrade to previous bios version

    or get new latest bios from devcice manager


    I am using 3 storage devuices , one Samsung 860 evo sdd 250 M.2 with latest firmware , one Seagate hdd 5400rpm 2TB ,, and one Toshibe hdd 1TB 5400rpm. Still no issues on asus vivobook 15 r542uq-dm153 .
