    I just put together my computer yesterday and for some reason whenever I boot up, I get a message in the POST screen saying that there are no IDE drives attached to my Fastrack controller, and that my BIOS is not installed. I can still run XP, but the flash utility doesn't work when I try to use it. I have a P4C800E-Deluxe motherboard from Asus and running Pentium 4, 3.2ghz cpu. :confused: Thank you in advance.

    The Fastrack issue is not a problem. Your motherboard has multiple IDE and SATA controllers. These have their own BIOS and thats what you are seeing. Its saying that you have no drives connected to this particular IDE controller which is most likely true. You may be able to disable the Fastrack COntroller altogether if you really want to in the BIOS or on the motherbaord with a jumper, or maybe not you'll need to refer to the motherboard manual.

    As for the Flash Utility, what happens with it? Have you tried instaling the latest one from the ASUS website?

    Thanks for the help Triple, I really appreciate it. I'll try that newer version of the BIOS.
