I am trying now to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64, but it keeps giving me this error message: "Marvell adapter initializing bios version
Adapter 1
No hard disk is detected"

My components are:
Mainboard ASUS P5QL
The Marvell Controller on the P5Q is for PATA (IDE) devices. As you are only using SATA:

Go into BIOS
Turn off the Marvel IDE controller
Check the SATA controller is enabled
Check yr SATA HD is recognised
Check yr SATA HD is listed as second boot device after cd/dvd or as first hdd

save & reboot

if that doesn't work you may need a sata driver but I'd be surprised if the P5Q drivers are not on the windows disk.

I remember Vista could not install if the HDD was configured as SATA as the drivers were not inbuilt & it use to hang & give BSOD. Is this problem over in windows7 RC1 or does it still require to integrate SATA drivers & make custom installation DVD?
