IF THERE IS ANOTHER IDE PORT FOR A SECONDARY DRIVE i WOULD TRY TO SWITCH OVER TO IT . IF NOT THE MOBO MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE IDE PORT. VEIRFIED THAT THE DRIVES ARE CORRECT AND TRY TO CHANGE THE BOOT ORDER IN BIOS .
The Asus bios won't show SATA devices.
However if you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (or newer operating system then the devices should be detected. If this is not happening then enter the bios -- Storage Configuration -- Configuration Enhanced and set the IDE devices to compatible. This allows all drives to be "seen" and you should then be able to load an OS.
YOU NEED TO VERIFY THAT THE RIBBON CABLE IS PROPERLY INSERTED INTO THE MOTHERBOARD AND TO THE HARDDRIVE THERE SHOULD BE A RED STRIP ON THE RIBBON THIS GOES TO THE #1 PIN ON THE BOARD AND THE DRIVE. ALSO IF YOUR DVD DRIVE IS OPERATING SIMPLY UNPLUG THE CABLE FROM THE DRIVE AND TRY IT ON THE HARDDRIVE AND REBOOT TO BIOS AND GO TO THE HARDDRIVE SECTION TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ANY HARDDRIVE SHOWING UP NOW. THIS WILL POSITIVLY TELL YOU IF THE OTHER CABLE MIGHT NOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY, OK? IF SO JUST MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES AND THAN REBOOT.
