finally got everything together and going through the vista install. I am getting a message stating the controllers need to be enabled in the BIOS???? I looked and the IDE controller is enabled...it is preventing me from installing windows and I can't seem to get windows to install on the drive. Is this really a controller issue? how would I go about resolving this? or is this a HD format issue? they are brand new out of the package? a little 'green' when it comes to this build stuff. THANX IN ADVANCE FOR ALL YOUR HELP!
