I'm having some difficulties with a new build (http://www.pcguide.com/vb/showthread.php?p=464513#post464513), and someone suggested the issue might be related to this Intel recall http://techreport.com/discussions.x/20326

My MOBO however is this one http://gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3449#ov which, having the X58 chipset, is PRESUMABLY not impacted by the recall situation. At least, not YET :confused:

I've also only run a 6Gbps HDD, and the trouble is said to only effect a boards 3Gbps SATA ports. If anyone has any additional insights into this, I'd life to hear them.

TIA

Fred

Sandy Bridge is the P and H67 chipsets. Nothing to do with the long established x58 boards.

If you want to rule out the hard drive run a Live CD/DVD with the HDD removed from the system.

Yeah, I thought that was a long shot, but worth considering. Yesterday I loaded 7 on an older IDE drive, still locked up, so I don't think it's related to the HDD.

Thanks for the reply.
