So, I just did first external build while following the newegg "how to build a computer" guide. When I boot up the system, I do not get a post beep, or the "disk boot failure" that Paul mentions. Instead, my monitor displays an ASrock UEFI setup utility screen. that shows:
UEFI Version : Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 P2.20 Processor Type : Intel i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz Processor Speed: 3300MHz Microcode Update : 206A7/28 Cache Size : 6144KB Total Memory : 8192MB with 64MB shared memory and 2mb GTT memory Dual-channel memory mode DDR3_A1 : None DDR3_A2 :4096MB (DDR3-1333) DDR3_B1 : None DDR3_B2 : 4096MB (DDR3-1333)
So what do you think? Is something wrong, or am I able to continue the build?

did you plug in a speaker to listen to the beep/
otherwise it sounds fine since you got into the bios
Yes, the speaker is plugged into the correct spot, thank you for your input.
