    Disable RAID checking in your BIOS. If you're not using RAID, you don't need to have it enabled.

    Just a thought......if the channel the hard drive is connected to is for example IDE3 or 4, you should load an ATA hard drive controller from the mobo disc, otherwise it would be auto detected.......unless your bios auto settings are incorrect.
