Upon building and beginning the startup, I inserted the motherboard disk and began install. Following a freeze at "reboot" or "backup" (I dont remember exactly what it said), I restarted the comp. After gigabyte boot, I have a black screen with "loading operating system..." Because I'm pretty illiterate in such matters I was hoping someone could help me out, I did some searching and I believe it has something to do with the Gigabyte BIOS. Suggestions/answers?

If you can get into the BIOS, post what your default SATA-0 and SATA-1 drives are. Your primary HD should always be hooked up to SATA-0, and your optical / storage device should be SATA-1.
Reset the bio on your mobo ( look in the book it will show you how )
Or try to reboot and hold down the del key ( and reboot with a differnt bios config or set it to opt delfaults .
