Hey guys, I got ubuntu setup on a new computer with 1 5830 using a USB drive as a bootable disk so I am a little versed in how it should go.  I just setup another tower which has 2 5970, its setup on an ASROck67 Extreme 4 MB, Intell 140 Processor, and some 250gig hardrive.

I bought everything new and had a computer shop build this. Everytime I boot this it says No hard disk detected, I took it back to the shop and they added some drivers and said it was running but I can not get it to see the harddrive. Any ideas? The harddrive was not shipped to me, I bought it retail.

Im just not sure why a harddrive installed by a computer shop is not showing up, even after they looked at it again and said it was working :/

Do I need a harddrive to get an OS working?

Where can I learn how to find what is wrong with a computer that does not recognize a harddrive?

"No hard disk detected" sounds like the type of error/info message that your BIOS would output, not the Linux kernel

Is this the case?  You mentioned that you are booting from a USB device; is the USB device this 250 gb hard drive, or something else?

If it is indeed an error from your BIOS (I assume it is), then the likely configuration is that you are using a USB device to boot from, with the hard disk being a separate device that you intended to store files on (which does not contain a boot loader)...  Try pressing F12 at boot (or sometimes F8; whatever the BIOS tells you to do for a boot menu) and see if you can boot from your USB device.  The problem is probably that the boot order is wrong
