Since you were able to see the message the video card is working.

Open the case & check the cables to the hard drive & at the motherboard to make sure they are connected properly.

Did you connect the 6-pin connector to the card? What is the make and model of your power supply, and can you give us the total wattage and amount of amps on the +12V rail(s)?

What happens if you take the graphics card out, and revert to your old method of graphics (either integrated or an old video card)? If you're still getting this message, it looks like something is wrong with your hard drive. If you go into the BIOS, does it list the hard drive?

You didn't unplug the HDD to plug in the video card did you?
