I put the system together and started it for the first time.   I noticed that the Boot Device LED is on and the Q Code LED reads A2.  There is no such code in the manual.  What is it trying to tell me?  Help.

I am reading the manual before I tackle this bios. :-)

Hi AK..

Do you have a hard drive or SSD connected to the system...?

Yes, an SSD  that I had pulled from my Windows 7 AMD machine.  I plan to format that drive when I install Windows 8.

Hi AK..

Not sure exactly what is going on there.. Try the reinstallation of Windows .. see if you get anywhere..

Thanks. I inserted the Windows8 system disk, deleted everything on that SSD, formatted and then installed Windows 8.  It installed very fast after I managed to read the very tiny key that Microsoft supplied.

Now the LED shows A0 and I guess they meant to say AOK. :-)

I did find the A codes in the manual, page 1-36, but I can't figure out the way they have sorted the codes.  You would think that A comes before E or F.

I already have seen another code that is not in the manual "40".   Unless I see the blue screen of death, I won't worry about what that means.

I am in install Hell. :-(

Hi AK..

The Q-Codes are Hexadecimal.. and 40 is in that range between 37 and 4E and probably indicates a momentary glitch in memory initialization.
