    Hi All, I think the title says it all really. We've got an ASUS x570TUF Gaming motherboard with a 3900x and ASUS 1070 installed. The system has 16GB of 2400MHz Corsair memory and boots from a 256GB Samsung M.2 drive.

    The spinning rust in question are two 2TB Seagate drives.

    All of the drives were used in an i5-6600 system until we upgraded.

    Now, the drives have been working fine, but the system sometimes does not find them on startup. Sometimes all it takes is a reboot and other times we need to forget about using the computer that day and try again the next day. It is a really intermittent fault.

    I've updated the bios, changed the cables and even the ports the drives are attached to. Nothing seems to work.

    Should I RMA the board or is it something simple I can do to fix this?

    Some boards skip over SATA until it gets to the OS in order to shave a bit off boot times.

    Do the drives who in windows or choice of OS here

    No. The drives don't appear in the BIOS or the OS.
