Is an OS already installed on the hard disk? The error message most likely is from the Marvell controller that doesn't detect a hard disk. It's normal if the hard disk is connected to the Intel controller.
I tried to install windows on the harddrive since I can book from my dvdrom and it says that it is on there when I try to repair from the windows DVD. I have the HD plugged into the SATA3G_3 connector. Should I plug it into the Marvell serial ata 6.0 GB/s connector? Maybe the wrong SATA connector? The HD is only a 3gb/s hard drive though.
I built the computer last night, installed windows, when I try to start up the computer it says "no hard disk detected" and instantly restarts. I can however get into bios and it shows up under the boot devices.
Is the hard disk in the boot device list and in the correct order? What happens if you press F8 at POST and select that hard disk? If the "no hard disk detected" message bothers you, then disable the Marvell controller if nothing is connected to it.
I have the boot order as the hard drive and then the DVDrom. Once I get home from work I will try disabling the Marvell controller. F8 at POST? Such a when it is starting up and hit the Fkey to select either the Hard Drive, DVD, or go to set up? Also, how do you disable Marvell in bios?
You probably didn't successfully install the OS with that boot order. As far as I'm concerned, you should set the boot order as DVD-ROM followed by Hard Disk and then reinstall the OS. If WIndows 7, also make sure that the Intel SATA controller is set to AHCI. You can use F8 (boot device list) at POST to select the boot device, but that won't help if the OS isn't installed properly. To disable the Marvell controller in the BIOS, I presume that you simply set it to "Disabled".
