My System Specs

Default

Did you try booting it without any ATA devices attached?

I've had issues in the past trying to run both ATA & SATA drives at the same time. I suspect it has something to do with the "slave / master" configuration and the fact that SATA drives run in IDE mode unless you change bios settings and install the sata drivers using the dreaded F6 pre windows install drivers.

I don't remember what my final solution was, but it might be that I had to set the SATA drive up as the initial boot drive.

(Seems to me that the problem was with the P35 board in my sig as well so it could be a gigabyte glitch).
