i7 920, motherboard Asus P6T, 4 hard drive (640GB WD, 2 x 160GB Seagate,
32 GB SSD OCZ core v2), 12G RAM. 

A horizontal cursor flashes means nothing to me... If you succeed
installing you should be OK with hard drive. Give more information
(kernel version should appear un GRUB menu e.g., do you use IDE/SATA or
(fake) RAID for install, what hard drive layout did you choose when
