    Have you tried running chkdsk /r on the hard drive(s)?

  • Are you using SATA?  You might need to load storage drivers for this motherboard during the install (watch for the Press F6 message during installation) - an easier way around it with no real loss in performance is to enable IDE Legacy Mode for your SATA controller, this setting is found in BIOS and maye just be called IDE Mode, or Legacy mode.
