New build: No hard disk detected!, then Windows boots


Just finished building a pc for the first time. Some pieces I have on it include:
- ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
- Intel Core i5-750
- Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

When I boot, I see the motherboard screen, then the screen goes black and appears with the message:

"Warning: No hard disk detected!"

5 seconds go by, then Windows boots perfectly fine.

I can see the drive in Bios and the HD is first in the boot order. The HD and the DVD drive are in sata 1 & 2.

This is baffling myself and my computer literate friends. Any ideas?
