Decent for the price but annoying 04/12/2010
This review is from: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Great features for the price. For an HTPC builder, or anyone on a budget, you can't go wrong with this board.
This board has an extremely annoying habit of changing the boot drive priorities whenever rebooted with new/different drives connected. This is especially obnoxious due to the USB drive boot support.
Every time I've rebooted with a new or different USB key plugged in, it's been moved to the top of the list, resulting in a OS not found type of boot error.
I boot from a PCI SCSI card and it invariably will either remove this device from the default list entirely, or move it to the bottom. Would be great if a BIOS updated added two settings:
1. Disabling USB boot features entirely. This is a security risk!
2. Making the current boot priorities "immutable" / disabling auto-detection-and-modification of boot prorities entirely once they are set manually.
