    Darrel,

    I have this board and exact problem. I wish the user manual would have said
    what GHalleck just said. I thought it was my motherboard bios, too. This
    error message is refering to just the promise controller bios. I don't know
    why it should have a bios, but it does. I have a WD 7200 40G HD. However,
    I went about flashing my MB Bios, because of this misleading error message.
    I followed steps in ch4 to the T on how to flash *.rom, unfortunately the
    Bios I flashed with, the one on the Asus CD, I used was incomplete. The
    Asus tech told me that by me flashing using it, I ruined my Bios. So he
    told me to short the CMOS. I did, however my board didn't come up
    afterwards, so I had to RMA it. I cannot belive the *.rom file on there CD
    is incomplete. All this would have been avoided if the Bios defaults had
    the promise controller disabled from the start. There is the same
    explanation I just gave in more detail on the www.promise.com Fasttrak FAQ.

    Goodluck, Brad
