Drivers will not affect whether the drive shows up in BIOS or not.
Your BIOS should have a setting under the 'Advanced' section for IDE and or SATA. Usually this needs to be set to 'Enhanced' mode or 'SATA plus PATA' Check your jumper settings-The drive should be set to 'Master' (if it even has jumpers).Check the power lead to make sure the drive spins up. Try different power lead and different SATA cable. If possible, try the drive in another machine to make sure it isn't 'Bad out of the Box'
If the drive does not show up in BIOS its a hardware issue or BIOS setting .
Once it shows up in BIOS - you'll be good to go.

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.
