Default Asus P6T "No hard disk is detected" fix?

Hey guys,I finally put together my i7 build lately with the following components:
Core i7 920/Asus P6T Deluxe/6GB ddr3 Corasair xsm3/XFX GTX260 black/
WD 640GB HD/Samsung 22x DVD burners

Everything is running smoothly with Vista Ultimate 32bit,but one thing bothers me is that now everytime before entering windows during post some says "Mavell 88se 61xx/63xx/64xx adapter..." and "no physical disk...no virtual disk...no hard disk is detected"
would appear everytime I boot up my system,although it doesnt prevent me from entering my OS or interfere the performance,but i still feel a bit distracted by constantly seeing these poping out everytime,can anyone help me fix the problem?
Too add a little more details,I put my WD 640GB in sata 1 port while the samsung 22xDVD is at sata 2 port,I already have a floppy dirve configured at IDE port,I'm by no means an expert at this,I appreicate your help guys thanks!

Default It Ain't Over Yet

NightWatch (I build 'em, I name 'em) started glitching with the occasional blue screen, slow loads and so on. I loaded a backup image and the problem went away for a few days that BOOM, it's back. After have the boot repair utility run around and running the regular hardware tests (all good) I updated the BIOS only to get the NHDD error. BIOS showed all the drives but at boot NHDD with the boot repair utility making the occasional cameo appearance. None of the suggested BIOS fixes worked and finally I turned to my Win7 install disk which loaded up and installed no problem. Once done the OS booted up golden I reloaded the backup image, booted and was right back to NHDD. NONE of the image backups worked, at all. I've since reloaded everything from install disks and current WAG is something in the new BIOS is incompatible with installs involving the original BIOS, including backups. Help?

Intel i7 2.66
Corsiar DDR3 1600 RAM (3 2GB sticks)
WDC 160GB C drive

Both drives tests out good (for what that's worth) and each reinstall, disk and backup image, involved deleting and repartitioning the drive. I'm about to do a reimage the drive using the backup I just made. If anybody hears a primal scream in the next few minutes, just kiss your kids, lock the doors and load your guns...

UPDATE: Backup image install, including repartition, done and NightWatch rebooted no problem! Looks like the WAG was right, something in the backup images done under the old BIOS was incompatible with the new BIOS...
