That mean you if you put a hardisk into the mobo but you never format the disk along with the mobo you need to do so. you need to format/install win xp/vista on the hard drive so that it can work with the mobo. So here is the point, if you have a new mobo, whenever you put hardisk on it, you must format the hardisk with win xp/vista.
So re-download a new bios file from there web site and try again, with these instructions....
Updating the BIOS
You can download and install updated BIOS for this motherboard from the
manufacturer’s Web site. New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements
in performance, or fixes for known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows:
1 If your motherboard has a BIOS protection jumper, change the setting to
allow BIOS flashing.
2 If your motherboard has an item called Firmware Write Protect in Advanced
BIOS features, disable it. (Firmware Write Protect prevents
BIOS from being overwritten.)
3 Create a bootable system disk. (Refer to Windows online help for
information on creating a bootable system disk.)
4 Download the Flash Utility and new BIOS file from the manufacturer’s
Web site. Copy these files to the system diskette you created in Step 3.
5 Turn off your computer and insert the system diskette in your computer’s
diskette drive. (You might need to run the Setup Utility and change the
boot priority items on the Advanced BIOS Features Setup page, to
force your computer to boot from the floppy diskette drive first.)
6 At the A:\ prompt, type the Flash Utility program name and the file name
of the new bios and then press <Enter>. Example: AMINF340.EXE
7 When the installation is complete, remove the floppy diskette from the
diskette drive and restart your computer. If your motherboard has a
Flash BIOS jumper, reset the jumper to protect the newly installed BIOS
from being overwritten. The computer will restart automatically.
turn off the power and briefly press the power switch to discharge electricity. open up the case and locate the clear cmos jumper (check the manual for the exact location) move the jumper from pins 1 -2 to pins 2 - 3 for about 10mins. return the jumper to pins 1 - 2 and close up the case. and turn on the power supply and try to reboot again.
