Okay. If your board has SATA connection slots it most definitely is SATA compatible. Check on your motherboard how many SATA slots you have, make sure that your HDD is connected to on the Mboard with any other drive in a numerical order (on the Mboard right next to the SATA slot it should read SATA 1 or SATA 2 ........). If that does not work plug is you HDD drive loosely so that when you switch on your computer you can listen to the HDD. should it emit a humming sound, meaning its powering up the problem could lie with your SATA slot or SATA Data Cable, try a different DATA cable if this does not work try blowing air into the SATA slot on the Mboard, If no luck then maybe the slot is burnt out or malfuntioning. Should you not hear a humming sound coming from your HDD then its either faulty or the there is no power going to it. try to alternate between the cable of your power supply. Try these and Please let me know how you go.

Did you get an error message during install of the (system with the SATA 160GB drive)? Make sure the 160GB drive is shown in the bios. Than go to the title, Boot in the bios & make sure the SATA 160GB is listed in the boot order. (Preferred 3rd. boot device)
Please go to the SATA drive's manufactures site & download either their bootable floppy or CD setup software. (It’s free)! Use their software to setup the FAT & cluster size on the drive. You can even set other features that neither the bios or windows can do. Format the 160GB drive with the software as well. The manufacture's software does a better job than windows. If the 160GB drive is a SATA 2.0 leave the jumper on the drive alone. The Desktop Board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 GB/s) via ICH7, connecting one device per channel.
Again, please run the manufactures setup software for your SATA 160GB drive. (Disconnect any other drives that may be in the system until windows is installed).
