I just built a computer, with a SSD Hard Drive. I also have 2 other hard drives in the computer which are regular SATA.

Upon boot up, I get an error that states, "No Hard Disk Found" but in reality everything works fine right after that message disappears.

What might be causing this and if it's a BIOS setting I need to change to not get that message what setting might that be?

Okay hardware info:

  • Asus P6X58D PREMIUM motherboard
  • Kingston 128 GB SSD
  • Nvidia Geforce GTX 465 PNY Edition
  • Corsair 12 GB DDR3 1600 Mhz Ram
  • Windows 7 Ultimate

anything else i can tell you, i will, just ask

According to the same question at this is not directly related with your harddrives. The motherboard is looking for SATA Rev. 3 (aka SATA 6 Gb) drives, but can not find any (most likely because you don't have any).

You can simply turn turn it off in BIOS.
