Tell us about your computer system, (motherboard make and revision #, CPU, RAM, Video card) and any devices attached to your system.
It's unclear if you atached a new SATA as a second drive to your computer, are dual booting, or are starting over.

Did you go into your BIOS and "enable the SATA? and is there a Floppy Drive attached as the A: drive?

Tap the delete key on startup to enter the BIOS. Disable the floppy drive. That should take care of the error.
