Boot up problem IS7-G

  1. I have been getting a "hard disk has been changed" message when I boot up. I have to go into the bios and auto detect my hard drive for it to complete the sequence. When I do that it boots normally. It's a pain to keep doing this! Any ideas as to why this may be happening?
    Here are my stats:
    Abit IS7-G
    Phoenix Award BIOS v6.00PG
    Hyper Threading Technology
    Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs)
    Seagate 120GB (only HD)
    1024MB RAM
    Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Sounds like a bios problem. have to checked to see if their is a bios update available? flashing to an updated bios might correct the problem.

    I know there is an update but I'm scared to f**k up!
    I don't want to screw it up worse...The flash thing is what scares me.

    from what I saw the latest bios update is in their "flash menu" update format which shouls automate the entire process.

    IF that is a bios update that runs within widows IT will flash the bios as the machine reboots..
