    my son had the same problem and it turned out to be a virus that wiped the config file. we repaired the windows file by doing a repair from the os cd....

    hope this helps

    how is the hdd connected??? via scsii or possibly SATA... if so you will need the floppy disk that you received with the motherboard for the SATA/scsii controller card that is onboard on your motherboard

    then you need to hop over to the gigabyte website and download the SATA drivers for your mobo...

    then when you boot to the setup hit the F6 and insert the disk you put the new sata drivers on and it will have no problems... :)
