boot device led on (new build)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just finished building my rig and it seems that I did something wrong.
I don't know why I'm getting the message "no hard disk detected" and the boot device led is lighting.

I have a sata hdd and dvd writer, both drives are listed on the bios so I guess I installed them correctly, but why the boot device led is on? is something wrong with the motherboard? I have the asus p8p67 pro.

Help me, please:sad-smile:
Thank you.

Have you already installed your OS on the HDD?

At what point did the install fail? Can you go through exactly what you did, and in what order? What all do you have hooked up so far?

You might go into your User CP and fill out your systems specs. That way myself and those to follow will know exactly what hardware you're dealing with.

Since you can enter BIOS, make sure that you have the boot order correct. It should be set to boot from your CD. Don't plug anything else into the SATA ports other than your optical drive and the drive you want to install your OS on.

Another thing, is this a new copy of Windows? Is it a legitimate copy?

Don't stress too much. I know it's a bummer when things don't go the way they should, but I would say that myself and the other folks here can get you up and running. smile.gif

I'ts a new copy of windows and it's legit, I tried to install it again and everything went good, windows 7 was installed successfully, but everytime I turn on my pc the message "no hard disk detected" still appears on the screen,the boot device led lights up and windows doesn't boot up.

The only way to boot windows is going to the bios, press f8 and choose "windows boot manager", otherwise won't boot

I had this exact same problem. Set your default boot device (first priority device) to "Windows Boot Manager."

In some BIOS, the windows boot manager was assumed to be part of the HDD it is installed on. However, with the BIOS on your board (and mine), once you install windows on to an HDD it becomes it's own separate boot "device", even though windows boot manager is installed on a HDD.

Just set your default/first priority boot device to "Windows Boot Manager" and it will work fine. biggrin.gif

It's the Marvell SATA III controller. If you don't have your HDD's/optical plugged into the Marvell ports (you can check which ones they are in the manual - I forget) then you can just disable Marvell SATA Controller in the BIOS.

It's not saying that there isn't an HDD detected, it's saying that there isn't a Marvell controlled HDD detected.

Edit: you can just leave it on like you have now and it will be perfectly fine. If you want to boost your boot time by 1-2 seconds then you can disable it biggrin.gif
