I am using Asus p7p55D-E Pro

I get this message when I try boot;

"No Hard Disks Detected"

Any Ideas?

I have the SATA disk WD black 640GB connected to the SATA 1 port on the motherboard

make sure the bios detects it
try differnt port,
try different sata cable,
or try flashing your bios might not be able to handle big drives

I tried connecting it to a different STA port, no difference.
This is a recent motherboard, why would it not be able to handle a 640GB drive?
How do I flash the BIOS?

Is this a new build? Are you trying to install OS?

Is the controller set to IDE in the BIOS?

Is the HD formatted?

Read your MOBO manual on how to flash bios.

Well that's your problem right there.

You're using a SATA drive, not IDE.

You can format it when you install OS..


I got a question did you put in the OS cd?


If you go to manufacture website they should tell you on how to flash the bios. Stay away from beta bios.
