    Crosshair V Fomula Z & Sata 7 & 8 ASmedia Ports Problem

    First off I've owned dozens of Asus motherboards but none quite like this. I have the computer completely booted up working besides overclocking because I'm not getting into that yet I'm just trying to figure out the 2 SATA controllers.

    Here is my setup:
    (All SATA)

    1 X BluRay Burner
    2 X Solid State Drives
    5 X Standard Hard Disk Drives

    Now I have everything plugged in but I cant get SATA ports 7 & 8 to show up in the BIOS, I've tried to enable the Asmedia OPROM but then it wouldn't boot or even let me go back into the BIOS so I had to do a CMOS reset it gave me some error message on the screen. As of right now I have Sata 1-6 working perfect and the SSD's and the HDD's are showing up fine but I'm having issues with SATA ports 7 & 8. I saw in one post while searching around that the AS Media ports 7 & 8 were for Optical Drives but someone had also said that there was AHCI drivers for them so I'm confused. Can anyone help me figure out how to get 7&8 working?

    Thanks

    The ASMedia Ports are for Optical and HD's with 1 exception....the ones one the MoBo 7or 8 are for Optical Drives while the ESATA on the back are for HD's and Optical's.

    I hope this helps and Yes I just read the Manual on this as well as experience from using the Crosshair V Formula/Thunderbolt
