Ah, the wonders of DECENT tech support!
Attached is the BETA BIOS for you. After update to this version, please
enter "BIOS Setup" --> "Advanced BIOS Features" to set the [SATA HDD] as
the first item under "Hard Disk Boot Priority". Then set "First Boot
Device" to [Hard Disk] to see if it works.
Thanks and regards,
Lydia Lai/ SOLTEK
Woo! Go Soltek! No to go try it ;)
