BIOS BUG 08/13/2008
This review is from: ASUS P5QL-E LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg RMA. I am a newegg fan for over 4 years. Service is greatly improved over the last couple years. Hardware raid. Took to long time to figure out that you need to press ctrl + i during boot to get into raid config. Board looks very nice.
Faulty bios. First tried to install Linux, couldn't do it. Tried with all kind of combination. Then decided to go with xp, couldn't do it either. At the installation screen, screen goes blank. If you plan to do linux, stay away. Also, asus support!, call the customer support line, you will realize how bad it is. I used to be asus fan, but because of their service I quit.
Bought a Intel BOXDG33TLM, even though rating is low, worked perfectly for linux (fedora 9). I called Intel, Asus, Gigabyte and tried to find out about their support. Intel is best, second Gigabyte. Couldn't get any support from Asus!, not even from their website.
