BIOS is searching for hard drives.

Does it say "HighPoint" or "HPT366" ?

That's the built-in ATA66 IDE channels. They run under a separate BIOS, kinda.

Is there a hard drive problem?
Or were you just asking what that was?

All modern mobos will search for IDE devices plugged into it's IDE channels upon booting up. After all if you don't have a mass storage device (hard disk drive) of some sort, how are you going to boot into an OS?

Just wanted to know for now, Guess I could disable it becaus I am running a Western 2.5 udma33 and seagate 4.3 udma 33 right now.

Oh also when I boot and get to windows on taskbar at the start menue, It says drive memory error, is that because I havent loaded the MASS storage drivers??
