Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium SP1

Also, is this the complete message? :

Hardware initiate failed, please check device!!! The BIOS does not be installed. Press <g> to continue"

This has been reported to be an error message on some systems where a SATA I device is installed on a SATA II port.

You system specs, including the brand and model number of that hard drive is very important.

Also note if you changed anything in the system (hardware) before installing W7.
