I have a Asus Rampage formula motherboard and a Seagate 500GB SATA hard drive. Whenever i boot up there will be a error that says master ide drive not detected. I looked in the bios and i coudn't find any thing that would set my hard drive as master. What do i do?

Not familiar with the Asus BIOS, but the SATA ports eliminate the master/slave problem. Do you have anything plugged into the IDE port on the motherboard?
Find Marvell IDE in bios and disable it. Its a message from a separate IDE controller that checks for IDE drive and obviously wont find it because your drive is SATA.
