I have a Gigabyte
motherboard GA-945GCM-21S ,,,,I have four hdds connected to this motherboard
two Segate IDEs (ST340016A and
ST340010A) 40 GB each to be used as storage and two SATAs (one Segate 500 GB ,
and other western digital 1TB) as shown
in the screen shot below :
SATA 500 GB
(ST3500418AS) has two NTFS partitions (created by Acronis) one of them has OS
windows 7 ultimate and other partition is for storage. SATA 1 TB has two NTFS partitions
(created by Acronis) as well ,both of them for storage.
SATA 500 GB (
ST3500418AS ) been given first boot priority in the BIOS , all of the sudden
whenever I restart a desktop BOIS keeps changing the priority fro SATA 500
ST3500418AS (should be first in the list) from the first to the third and move
40 GB IDE ST340016A to be the first. As can be seen in the snapshot below :
What I did I upgraded
the BIOS recently and I removed the battery (Battery voltage is checked as
well) but still I am experiencing same issue.
What could be the
cause of this issue ?
Are you saving the changes when you exit the setup? You can also try swapping the two SATA cables (ST340016A and WD10EARS-003BB1) where they plug into the motherboard and see if that helps.

Please image above for the boot priority was marked wrongly, the below is the correct snapshot

Sorry for the confusion because of the wrong screenshot I posted early.
ST340016A is IDE cable and ST34003418AS is SATA cable.
Yes I tried to swap between ST34003418AS (Segate 500 GB) and WD10EARS-003BB1(Western Digital 1 TB) but no joy
