I have been plagued for the last few yyears with drives dissappearing and I have 8 dead new HDDS on my desk Why?

Well its simple

ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 R2.0 Motherboard an 8 sata drive motherboard and ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 a 6 sata drive Motherboard have similar names and some idiot didn't see this. to fix the problem 22h2 has with This MB just download the drivers for the ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 R2.0 and install the asmedia sata3 (v2.0.8) drivers then do a complete shut doun for each harddrive you need to install as it only installs one hdd each shut down and reboot do not try to just restart your computer as this won't install your older drivers that you need to drive this acient but awsome MB. Also if your ram slots are full on this board you must set the ram timing dow one notch from full 2 ram sticks will run at full but 4 wont. and you'll only get the microsoft emblem every time you try to start it. Please pay more attention to detail infuture microsoft. How did I find this I watch a tech support persom go for the wrong MB on the list of drivers and the penny dropped similar name but totally different drivers hope my computer keeps running awsome now and you owe me a heap of HDDS Microsoft as every time my drives dropped out they got fries as they were not hot swappable with the sata3 leads. and also the settings on those internal drives were fixed so every time a drive bleeped it was getting fried.
