    I just built my first computer, and I am trying to work out a few kinks here and there. I am running one HDD, a WD Raptor 150 GB, and for some reason, when I boot my computor, the BIOS says that no hard drive is detected, yet somehow it still manages to boot Vista, and the HDD is available once Vista is booted. I don't beleive it is causing any problems after boot, but it just seems odd that it wouldn't be detected by the BIOS. Did I do something wrong?

    There may be a setting in your BIOS that a HD is present in addition to the one the OS is on.
