Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.

Hi, you will need to load the sata raid drivers when installing the OS. Some off the older versions of xp will not have these, when windows is installing it will ask if you need to install a 3rd party raid driver press F6. later on it will ask you to insert the raid driver disk. which you may have to do/make yourself if you haven't already got one.

Sounds like you just need to install your SATA drivers. Look around for your cd/floppy disc of drivers if you have any. When you boot from the CD, It will ask you if you have any other drivers you would like to install, thats when you install them and it should read your SATA hard drive just fine. If you dont have your driver CD anymore search ASUS's website or just google (or similar search engine) your motherboard and look for drivers. Beware of some phony sites though. Good luck :)
