However, after booting from the external hard drive, it becomes normal speed. It works fine except for one thing — USB speed booting off of the flash drives.

I use several different flash drives with different configs for testing. I think I’ll just stick with it because I’m already happy with this boards performance.

I removed the hard drive from the enclosure and ran it through one of my SATA ports. I ask that because I know some devices have their own controllers which can conflict with the onboard ones.

My usb devices won’t turn off even if the system is off, but that is a different story. Hope this helps someone out there. Interestingly, this seems to be an ever growing issue for many different motherboards from different vendors.

I updated my BIOS sometime back and never had any issues since. I only changed the boot priority to USB and then booted as mentioned in step 7. DMerces February 3, at
