    Maximus VII A2 (IDE Detect)

    Keep getting this A2 Q code after i start it up, then stops at a screen that gives me the option to go into BIOS by pressing F1. I have searched on google and believe after what I have read, that this is something about having trouble of selecting which boot device to boot from. So i unplugged the HDD so the only devices was my SSD and optical drive. I installed windows 7 again and made sure that my SSD was my first boot priority. After loading up again I get the same screen which tells me to press F1 to enter BIOS. I can choose to override and start up on the SSD, and it starts up normally into windows 7.

    I have updated the BIOS to the newest version and all the settings in BIOS is by default. I have read that AHCI should be enabled(it is by default), and also fast boot should be disabled, this has not helped.

    This is my first time assembling a new machine so any help is appreciated
