Hello Hope you all can help me heres my setup ASUS Sabertooth X58 MOBO And Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ and a NZXT HALE90-750-M 750W ATX 12V Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive . I forgot to order the optical drive but I thought I would go ahead and boot it up to see if I got any Errors and this is what came up after the Asus logo. Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device press any key? I thought this was a harddrive problem but the Harddrive was a 6.0 so used the white sata cable and plug it into the hard drive and the White Sata port.Should I have used the Black sata cable instead? what amI missing it acts like its not seeing the haddrive Help Please

Hi S..

In order to have a boot device, you must have a master boot record.. and from what you post, since you have not yet installed an operating system, you don't have one...

Hi S..

That's right.  The installation disk has an MBR.. and so you can boot to it and load in the operating system.  That procedure writes an MBR to the hard drive..

Thanks Ulrich I installed Windows7 And ran the System for about six Hours without any Problems. I did notice that the Ram Timming was of,f it showed 8-8-8-24 and it was supost to be 9-9-9-24 so I called Asus Tech suport about changing it and He told me if its not broke dont fix it, so I just left it alone for now. Beside the System is for my Son inlaw and all he well us it for is Facebook so He Should be Happy with it Thanks Again for the Help

Hi S..

Glad everything went well..  The techie was right..!  Your memory is running a bit better than advertized... the timing is a little tighter.
