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.

boot from CD rom hit F6 when prompted and install sata driver. then you should be good 2 go. If your using a sata cd rom, swap it for a a ide during o/s install then reinstall after o/s install is complete also enable sata in bios 1st as well. I had the same board with a pent D 3.0 that clocked to 4.122 with OCZ ram.
great board but old usb 1 sata 1.5 ..

yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

Here is the answer directly from Mercury. The answer is yes if it's a Celeron D processor.

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.
