You may have to "select" the hard drive where your OS is as the main hard drive and then set it as the boot drive as well.

In my RAID that's what I had to do everytime I updated the BIOS. If that doesn't work, your HDD may be damaged.

Did that. Also the hard drive is new. Does it make a difference if it is plugged in with the sata cable or no?
