    SATA ports not working after windows 10 update


    Hello folks,

    I cloned my C drive and updated to windows 10 a week ago. Yesterday SATA ports 2 and 3 stopped working (on MOBO gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP). I think it is a windows 10 problem because I have:
    • swapped my drives between SATA ports. All drives do not work in ports 2 and 3 and they all work in the other ports. So that eliminates the possibility of disk or cable problems.
    • checked that all ports are enabled in BIOS, and switched ports 2 and 3 off and on again to make sure.
    • swapped back to my old C drive, which is still on windows 7. All ports work fine with win7. I think that eliminates the possibility of a MOBO fault and since everything works with win7 I'm guessing it must be a win10 problem...
    It is strange because everything was fine for a week, problem started yesterday with no obvious cause. Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks heaps...

    :)

    After updating to Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3199209) windows keeps rebooting and refusing to read my SSD and now my other drives

    2 weeks ago this update was forced onto my machine, when I first booted up after the update, it refused to recognize my SSD, all I had to do then was just unplug the SATA cables from the ports and plug them back in. Today, 1 week after the update it restarted
    itself in the middle of the night, assuming it disconnected the SSD, my main drive, in the middle of the night, as I woke up to a windows recovery boot screen, the same one I saw a week ago with the same problem. I ended up fixing it, atleast temporarily by
    moving SATA ports, but this is insane. This only just started after going to Windows 10 Version 1607.

    You can use the top 2 sata ports for the main os drive and the cd/ dvd burner

    The 4 lowest darker color sata ports are for secondary storage drives

    The lower lighter color sata ports are for other operating system drives.

    The Express sata ports are for Raid drives only and no Raid is not worth doing SATA ports not working after windows 10 update :)

    If you have drive issues it is a mess to fix.

    See how it boots after adjusting the connections.

    SATA ports not working after windows 10 update

    Sorry! I forgot I had installed more RAM and it didn't occur to me that might affect the SATA ports. Fiddled round and fixed the problem.

    The GA-Z77 MOBO has 4 RAM slots. I had 2 8GB sticks in slots 1 and 2 and yesterday I bought 2 more sticks, just because RAM is cheap. The new sticks have large heatsinks on them which I thought would interfere with airflow if I put them in slots 3 and 4. So I moved my old RAM to slots 3 and 4 and put the new RAM in slots 1 and 2.

    The SATA ports stopped working, but it didn't occur to me that it could be because of moving the RAM around. Just then I put my old RAM back into slots 1 and 2, and put the new RAM into slots 3 and 4. Bingo, all the SATA ports work. Then I moved it all back again, SATA ports still work.

    So I'm guessing my problem was related somehow. The RAM was showing up in my system, and after the install yesterday I did a windows memory diagnostic to make sure it worked. But today, removing the RAM and putting it back in fixed by SATA ports. Go figure!
