Default Computer won't boot

Whenever I turn on my computer, my computer won't run. As it is trying to detect the bios it gives an error message of "Ultra100 Bios is not installed because there are no drives attached" Does anyone have any clue on how I can solve this?

NVM turns out my ide cable was bad.

your problem could be the IDE cable, or the jumpers being improperly set, I Don't think its the drivers if your machine is not actually detecting the devices at all - that's a hardware fault then, and you need to open the machine and see press all cables firmly in, then try again. If still no, try one device at a time, and try checking jumper settings.

Also, check what PCI cards you have installed. In the BIOS there is an option to disable/enable the RAID controller. Make sure this is set to disable
