Default BIOS Question

In my BIOS, there are Primary IDE master, Primary IDE slave, Third IDE master and fourth IDE slave. For some reason, my HD is on Third IDE master instead of Primary IDE master (only one HD). Does anyone know why? And I keep getting the "No drive attached to FASTTRAK CONTROLLER, BIOS is not installed" message when booting. Is it something about my SATA setting? Where is the option to disable SATA?

I think you hooked the drives up to the secondary IDE cable, look at your mobo, should show you primary ide, and secondary.. switch the cables so your on the primary, and you'll be set
