The disk connected to port 0 of controller show this message, after ~ 3 cycle sata link up limited to 3.0 Gbps …

with windows if this disk it’s used as os disk (windows installed on it), os freeze … at reboot hd is not recognized from

marvell bios

There’s a firmware update for this hd ?

Other hd (C300 ssd for example) have the same issue and it’s released a new firmware for hd for bypass marvell controller bug.

For detailed issue description see this post on asus forum :
