A2 Error code Msi 970 gaming

I recently built my computer and when i go to turn it on i get a black screen with an A2 error code in the bottom right. I have read many threads to try to get a solution to this problem but i cant find any that work. When i unplug my seagate 3tb hard drive the computer will boot and let me access BIOS and i can load into my windows 10 installer. The problem is when i go to install windows 10 i have no where to install it too since i unplugged my hard drive.

I am really confused (This being my first build) , on how to fix the A2 code i have also tried using different SATA cables and using the different SATA ports on the mother board

    Clear the bios. This can be done by shorting two pins commonly labled "clear cmos", if in doubt consult the boards manual

    After doing this step again i no longer got the error code , thanks for the help!
  3. No problem, a cmos reset normally fixes most common bios problems
