Under standard CMOS features, select IDE PRIMARY MASTER, hit enter.

Hit AUTO...does the drive detect?

Under ADVANCED BIOS FEATURES, after setting BOOT SEQUENCE to the harddrive as first device, select HARDDRIVE BOOT PRIORITY to set the correct drive.

it won't recognize your cd-rom in safe mode....reboot again, this time pat attention to messages.

That was a fast install

I repeat my suggestion that you clear up the cmos by unplugging the computer from power source and taking out the battery for 10 minutes. This will reset bios values to default. If you got a message about cmos and overclocking there is no point in bypassing the message. Go to basics and try to run the computer on default.
