Don't know but something isn't right. I assume you are Saving before you Exit the BIOS. Use the SATA cable from the Optiarc since we know it's good. If that doesn't help try setting the BIOS to default again or pull the battery then put the options back to the way we have them now.
Computer boots into Windows after restart only, can't enter setup

Of course, I always save and exit. I used the SATA cable from Optiarc so now the Kingston is on port 3, still nothing. Set the BIOS to default and pulled the battery and nothing again. Options are back to the way where we left.

Does it see the Kingston on Port 3 now?
I would change the options back to:
OS Type: Other OS
CSM Support: Always
Boot Mode Selection: UEFI and Legacy
Storage Boot Option Control: They have Legacy here but I would think UEFI First would be better. I would try both.
OnChip SATA Controller: Enabled
OnChip SATA Type: AHCI
OnChip SATA Port4/5 Type (SATA3 4/SATA3 5 connectors): (These should not be in play unless you have your drive connected to SATA 4 or SATA 5 plugs.)
The default is IDE but as we have no IDE I think it should be: As SATA Type

If you connect the OptiArc to SATA 1 does it show up? Can you boot from it to the Windows Install OK? Can you do a Repair Install?

Yes Optiarc does show up on port 1 and I can boot from it to Win install but I can't do a repair

What does it show if you go into disk part like you did before then do
Does it have a * under gpt at the end of the listing?
select disk 0 (Or whatever disk shows up in list disk.)
What does it show?
This is what mine says:
DISKPART> list disk
Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 931 GB 93 GB *
DISKPART> select disk 0
Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
DISKPART> list partition
Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Recovery 1000 MB 1024 KB
Partition 2 System 260 MB 1001 MB
Partition 3 Reserved 128 MB 1261 MB
Partition 4 Primary 836 GB 1389 MB
Partition 5 Recovery 545 MB 837 GB
Try a complete new install perhaps move the Optiarc to SATA 2 first. Might be worth redownloading the program to the USB. I had one once where that was the only thing that worked.

It does show * under gpt ,it's pretty much the same as your diskpart.
Moved Optiarc to port 2, will try with clean install on USB

If you had to redo it to MBR then try changing the Storage boot to Legacy First

I'm running out of ideas so I have posted on our internal forum asking for others to look at the problem. Hopefully someone else has more experience with this motherboard. I told them to just jump in here with suggestions so you may see different people posting.
