    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If it is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer and take these steps:
    Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
    Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.

    It either doesn't like your hard drive OR simply doesn't recognize it.

    Have you set up your bios for the type of hard drive you are installing?

    You have to read your mobo manual and set the bios up correctly FIRST.
