I have bought a rig with 2500k and Asus P8P67 pro. There is a flash screen whenever I start the computer, saying that hard disk is not found. Then the computer is restarted automatically, and properly in the OS installed without a hitch. How to get rid of the prob? Is there any prob with the mobo?
open up your computer and make sure the Hard Drive has 2 cables plugged into it, and the the smaller cable goes into the motherboard and is in correctly. if that doesnt help, post back and i will figure something else out
It is quite possible that you are seeing a message for the secondary hard disk adapter.
On my ASUS motherboard I see a message flash past about "no hard disk installed", but it's for the Marvell controller which controls the third and fourth SATA III ports. I am only using the Intel ports. I keep wondering if I should disable the Marvell controller so I don't get that message.
If I'm correct, then you have nothing to worry about.
