Hi guys,

I'm having an issue with my GA-A320M-S2H V2 (rev. 1.1, F51c). Installed a new NVMe at the weekend from an old, working SSD Macrium image. If I want to boot Windows from the nvme (Windows Boot Manager) select in the bios, then nothing else can be selected. As soon as I select my optical drive as 1st (preferred), the nvme as 2nd, I'm unable to boot - even if there is no media in the optical drive :rolleyes:

Just booting from the NVMe is fine as is booting only from the optical drive but the two can't be used together? I didn't have this issue when I was booting with optical and SSD/HD so I'm thinking it must be a firmware/hardware issue?

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

It could be a small issue fixed in a BIOS update. The issue may be going unnoticed because fewer PC's still use a DVD drive.
Yeah, that's what I'm hoping... seems odd that they both work but independently. What's annoying is that optical/SSD booting was fine until the introduction of the NVMe.

Worst things happen as sea but it's still annoying...
