Finally got everything together and the nerve to flip on the switch, thanks to the advice that I have gained from some great people here. ;)

Though when booting it does something that I have never seen a PC do before and it has me wondering.

Like any system the first thing displayed is the bios. "Fasttrak 378 BIOS 1.00.037".

Then it goes on to a second line "Scanning for IDE"

After it has several periods posted after the Scanning for IDE, it then states.

" No drive attached to Fasttrak controller, The Bios is not installed"

What exactly is it telling me. I searched Asus's site for info of this nature, and come up empty handed.

I have been able to go on and install windows and the software/drivers needed for other hardware, with out any trouble. Along with copying everything I wanted from my previous PC on to this system, again surprisingly no trouble....yet.

The fasttrak bios is most likely an onboard raid / sata controller made by promise. If nothing is connected to the controller, then the bios [controller not system] will not load.

If you do not use this feature, it can be disabled in the system bios. Disabling the raid or sata will allow your system to boot faster because it will not be looking for devices attached to the controller.
