I feel your pain, I just went through this.

Even MSIs SATA drivers didn't help becasue their so-called SATA/RAID driver floppy doesn't include SATA drivers. X(

Here's how I got around the problem. Ridiculous solution but it worked.

You'll need:
1) an IDE drive
2) a copy of Norton Ghost or other drive ghosting utility.
3) another computer that's working.

Here goes.
1) Take out the SATA drive.
2) Install the IDE drive
3) Install windows as if you were using the IDE drive.
4) after the installation can boot or after all the updating is done ( up to you) take out the IDE drive
5) Ghost the IDE drive
6) Install the ghosted image to the SATA drive.
7) Install the SATA drive

The motherboard has no problem BOOTING from a SATA drive with the firmware that came to it, but it wont recognize until after POST, so you can't install windows on it >=(

Anyway those steps will work, assuming you have a computer and an IDE drive laying around.

Huge pain in the arse, right?

Go into the bois and make sure the sata raid or raid option is enabled, that should fix it

Dear i am using ms-7142 v-1 motherboard. now i,m using ide 80 gb hdd.now i want to connect 160 gb sata hdd.its not showing bios also.hdd is working fine.i reinstalled os.and installed sata raid driver


first thing I would try is seeing if the sata drive is recognised on another motherboard if at all possible ,in order to eliminate the motherboard as the issue.If it is recognised on a different motherboard it is more than likeley a bad cable or a bad board .
