I have this mobo and I had the same issue

I was trying to install windows on my 40 gb and it flat would not format the disk

I hooked up my 120 gb and it formatted right away

When the thing finally was ready the computer detected the 40gb just fine

try a bigger HD to format before you go to the trouble of taking it back

Awww Damn it!!! My computer is on fire again
