Hello Everyone,

I am trying to build a system starting with an Intel DX58SO m/b. I have connected my DVD drive containing Vista64 disk and a blank HD. Both drives are SATA (there is no IDE on this m/b). When I boot into the BIOS I can see the Samsung. When I boot I get a message from the Marvell Contoller saying "Adapter 1 - No disk is detected" and sure enough when I get to the point where Vista is asking me where to install to, there are no drives to select from.

I have tried booting with Drive Configuration as IDE and AHCI and with/without Boot to Network enabled (it shouldn't be and it isn't now).

Any thoughts?

Connect the hard drive to the regular SATA ports, not the RAID ports (Marvell controller). The RAID ports need a driver on installation of Windows.
You have 4 regular ports and 2 Marvell ports. The color should be different.
