I have a motherboard that does something like that. It password protects the hard drive. What mobo are you using?

It's probably asking for your administrator password. Many people don't set a password, so try just leaving it blank and press enter.

If not, there are ways around the password, but I don't remember off hand. Search the forums for ways to get around passwords in your OS.
