    Default ASRock H61M-VS ... problem on boot up for first time.

    Hi, I recently bought and built a low budget gaming computer for my son.

    System Build - PCPartPicker

    I got everything installed, fans working, running nice and then the first time I boot it up (mobo driver disk inserted) it starts up, 1 second it goes to the asrock main page, then continues to an error (?) page, which is linked http://i41.tinypic.com/15q3jmr.jpg .

    ( seen on this forum post New computer. When it boots up... ... although, my specific error doesn't show me the part about "Freecom" and lower. Just the top section )

    Then goes to another screen saying:
    Quote:

    Driver disk preparer v1.07-asrock incorporation, all rights reserved

    Generate serial ATA Driver diskette [y/n]


    It then tells me

    Quote:
    only floppy drive is supported!


    and forces me to reboot.

    Now my question is... am I forced to go buy a floppy drive? Is something wrong with the hardware?

    You have to install Windows before you install the drivers.

    I just tried booting from an ASRock installation disk and it did just what you described.
    Interesting - I never tried that before.
