HDD not detected on boot

I just finished putting together my new comp. When I boot up I get a message saying no Hard disk detected but when I go into my Bios it's there, I was able to install windows and it's running fine, and can't seem to see any problems.

Everytime i do a restart I get that message but after a second of being on screen windows starts as normal. Any thoughts on what's going on?

More about detected boot
  1. I have the same problem on my P55 build that I just finished today. It'll say that there's no hard drive detected then Windows will just start normally after that. Sorry to piggyback on your thread, but does anyone know what's causing this?

    Did you guys try flashing the BIOS? Heres another thread on the issue (not same mobo though):

  3. There are 2 SATA controllers on this board. If you don't have a drive connected to one of them it might show this on boot. If that is the case it is not an error.
  4. Thanks for the information. I'm going to try disabling the Marvell under the Bios and see if that works.
  5. Check in BIOS Setup also that you don't have your IDE ports enabled if you have NO IDE devices.
