    Hello,

    Since the last time I re-installed my computer with Windows 7 I also updated my BIOS to the latest one from ASUS.

    Since then, my computer has been hanging at the BIOS post. Sometimes it also hangs when only a cursor is blinking on a black screen.

    To boot properly I have to restart 2 or 3 times before it boots up Windows.

    How come I am having this problem and how is it possible to solve?
    Thanks.

    Make sure HDD is set to 1st boot device, it might be looking at other drives / USB etc to boot from

    UEFI BIOS updates reset everything to default, go into the BIOS and set it all back up again

    It could look like you are right. The first hard drive set to boot was not the one with Windows 7 installed. Now it is set correctly and I hope it solves the problem.

    I will get back to you even if it is fixed or not :)

    Also check that JMicron® JMB362 controller is not enabled unless you have something attached to that port

    (Im assuming its the same as mine, mine is called ASMedia and it looks at a specific SATA port for a boot device for about 5-10 seconds before booting)

    I have no idea if anything is attached to that port. How should I check that?

    Disable it in the BIOS, if you lose a drive, enable it again or switch that drive to another port

    I am still seeing this problem from time to time. I've also checked that the boot priority is set to my main drive (which is a SSD).

    What could be the next possible solve?
