    Help with new Z490 build

    My current build was built in 2016. So it is time to upgrade. I have a Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H. It is an atx mobo and has 8 sata ports. I need the 8 sata ports in my new build as well. To date, I have only found e-atx mobos with 8 sata ports. I have no problem going with one of those, but I also need a case that will allow me to have the sata devices I need. They are 2 Blu Ray DVD writers and 5 hard drives. That would allow me to have one sata M.2 drive.

    I am looking at a Thermaltake Core X71 case. Finally, I am running Ubuntu18.04.5 at the moment. I would assume I may need to upgrade to 20.04. I would like to stay with intel.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on what mobos might be working with 20.04? I have seen trhe Asus ROG Maximus XII Extreme and the ASRock Z490 AQUA that are e-atx and have 8 sata ports with a ton of USB ports (which I need).

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    On initial boot, I entered BIOS and was not able to select a boot drive (no drives appeared.)
    I then rebooted and invoked Boot options, but it showed no drives from which to choose.
    Finally, I rebooted once more, invoked Boot options, drives were shown, I chose my boot drive, and everything worked.
    Since then, no problems, but I have to invoke Boot options.
    I am going to try a straight boot to see what happens (if the system will remember my boot drive.)
    I will report on that result at next reboot.
