As per title. I have an ASRock 970 Extreme4, and cannot for the life of me get BAMT to connect to the network. Odd thing is, it sees eth0 and creates an odd eth0:avahi as well. Loaded windows to test with, and network works, but occasionally will not connect on boot. Also, the first PCIe slot seems jinxed - wonder if this is an RMA situation, or missing/incorrect drivers? Ideas?

Upgrade or downgrade the BIOS. Load the defaults and/or optimized defaults. Pretty sure I have this board and it works fine.

Yep I have another one and it works great, but I had only been using BAMT on a crappy Biostar mobo, and assumed it might be a driver missing or something.

Any time I use PCIe slot #1 with any other slots, Windows BSODs when I start cgminer. All other slots work fine when that one is not in use. I don't know whether the same would happen with BAMT because I couldn't get it to connect to the net. Tried several combinations of cards.

Will try BIOS update.

That's weird. If the bios doesn't fix it, I'd RMA it. Sounds like you have a bad board. Two video cards shouldn't bsod a fresh install of windows.

UPDATE: I dunno what I did wrong, but I copied the installation from another rig, and it worked perfectly, I even have 6 cards running - one with a PCI adapter. Huh So I'll consider this solved.

When I was switching the hard drive out, I also blew some air at the board, might have also dislodged a stray metal shaving perhaps. I did all my drilling with the mobo still in the packaging, but some of the bits might have made their way onto the board.

TL;DR, it works now, thanks.
