Beeping Sound on Startup

I just got the "COMPLETE 32 CHANNEL DVR ULTIMATE SECURITY CAMERA PACKAGE" and I hooked up one camera  just to make sure I got a feed. It worked fine but then the system started beeping. I had the top of the DVR case opened up because I was installing the hard drives and I notice a red LED at location LED9 amongst the blue and green ones on the board itself. It is right next to the little round siren component that was making the noise. I logged in to the system which I thought might stop the noise, but it didn't. I'm not sure what the problem is. The tone isn't constant, it's about a half second beep every couple seconds. Any insight would be much appreciated!

It sounds like it is beeping at you to tell you that there is no hard drive. The DVR should be off while hard drives are being installed.

Got it... that's what it was about. I did have 4 hard drives installed, but one had ERROR in it's status bar, so I disconnected it and the beeping stopped. Thanks :)
