M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 RTC Boot Problem
 

My MB refuses to boot from the Samsung HDD attached to any SATA port
until the RTC is reset then it boots OK and works normally until the
next time it is shut down.
During BIOS set-up the HDD is correctly detected, and all I do is reset
the time/date this is the second MB with the same problem. what have I
got wrong.
The HDD booted the previous MB (ABit AN8 Ultra) OK.
I've set the SATA port as IDE and AHCI to no affect.
Nothing connected to the PC except mouse keyboard and monitor.
Any suggestion please before I bin the board.:

What BIOS version?

Did you install to this Samsung HD, or did you move this HD from another
machine? What OS?

I only changed the motherboard etc the HD remained from the previous
build with XP Pro OS.
Since posting the request I've found a thread on an ASUSTek forum to a
problem with some Samsung drives (mine included) there is a software fix
(not tried) and a fudge forcing the SATA data rate to 3Gbs this has got
the MB seeing the HD and booting ok Imay try the software fix later but
for now I've got a booting PC.
