Have you checked in the bios setup of the motherboard if your SATA ports are enabled?
Let me know if you need further assistance.

First thing, Sata hard drives dont use the Master/Slave setup.
That's only used on IDE drives through jumper settings on the drive itself. For Sata to work correctly all it needs is to be detected or enabled by the bios and set to be the first bootable HDD in the Bios boot menu. While installing Windows XP you will see a prompy very early on in the install process to Push F2 for recovery or push F6 for any additional disk or raid drivers. Push F6 while its shown on the bottom, its only there for 1-2 seconds so make sure you get it quick.
You will need a floppy with the drivers written on it, usually you can get those from a disk that came with the motherboard or from the PC or motherboard manufactuers website (look for SATA drivers and unzip or install them to your floppy.)
Insert the floppy when prompted and it will detect your disk during the Setup part of the windows instalation. If installing Vista or Windows 7 beta you will not need SATA drivers.
