    I'm new with ROG boards. I just did a build with this board and really like it. A2 = IDE Detect. I guess that means it got as far as that. I would make sure you have everything grounded correctly in the case. Make sure all your stand-offs line up and are tight. When you put the board in, make sure that all the Back I/O Ports are lined up correctly there as well. Maybe someone else has better advice.

    Welcome, Xtreme69, to the ROG Forum!

    That A2 is not really an error code, it's more a status... pcunite is right, it's meaning that the BIOS finished and handing over the control to the OS... - I guess it was a storage device connection problem (loose SATA cable or loose power)... Have you tried it since then inside your case?

    If,ok
    Please help to change another one sata cable for test it again
    And double check that only installed storage device(OS HDD) under the motherboard
    EX:if you have installed the usb device,DVD ROM, or others....please remove first!
