Question about MSI 865GM2-LS Motherboard
You must set the boot options in the BIOS to get SATA drives set up. When you first start the computer, press [Delete] key to enter the BIOS. Check out the menu options to activate the SATA drives. If you want the SATA drive to boot into Windows, the SATA connections must be set as first boot. The problem I found, I had an IDE CD/DVD drive and a SATA hard drive. I couldn't boot IDE to start the Windows Install disk and have it write to the SATA drive.
I had to buy a SATA CD/DVD drive to work with my SATA hard drive.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
