I think the best way to proceed now is to make sure you only have one SATA drive plugged in and no other hard drives, whether SATA or the older IDE Remember that a hard drive needs two cables: SATA and power. The settings you'll find in here will be different for each motherboard and BIOS version, so I'll try to be somewhat general in explaining the available options. http://w3concepts.net/hard-drive/bios-doesn-t-recognize-sata-drive-but-it-boots-from-it.php Building a New Computer - Part 1: Choosing Hardware Building a New Computer - Part 2: Putting it Together Building a New Computer - Part 3: Setting it Up Building a
