Scanning IDE drives.......
No drive attached to FastTrak controller, The BIOS is not installed.
The message is an informational warning only. It may be ignored. Its purpose is to tell you that in case you thought you did attach drive(s) to any of these ports, they aren't being seen.
A different message format appears if the chip is set to IDE mode in the BIOS, but the meaning is the same.
If you do not want to see this message, either attach a hard drive to one of the ports, or go into your BIOS Setup utility and set your Onboard Promise Controller to "Disabled".
