    I am installing a new motherboard (abit kg7-raid), and it is not recognizing my drives. I have flashed the bios and double checked all the connections and get the same results. Any ideas?

    If you are getting a checksum error, it sounds like a bad bios or a bad flash. You can try flashing again. Check the website for bios recovery procedures if any. Then make sure you have the exact bios for your board.

    Hope this helps

    Try holding the insert key down and pressing the power button, if that doesn't work try to clear cmos by either pulling the battery or using the jumper, which ever it has, try and reboot, press delete key immediately when memory count starts.

    If you can't get to bios and same error I would suspect a bad motherboard

    What did you upgrade from? In other words, what hardware did you keep and plug into the new motherboard? Make sure anything that you put in from your old board is compatible with your new board, especially memory, CPU and graphics. What are the specs on your old drives as far as ATA type, etc.
