Yes I did. I followed the advice of many friends of mine. The SATA Driver Disk that came with the board did not work. I tried going to viaarena.com and downloading the appriopriate set of drivers there.
I noticed that MY SATA, the one I use in my computer, has no jumper pins.
The SATA that I used in my new build, the one that isn't being read by the new computer, does in fact have some jumper pins, but it came with no jumpers, nor can I find a diagram for jumpers relating to that drive. I'll give you guys the model number for it...
Its a Western Digital Caviar SE SATA Hard Drive 160GB
Model # - WD1600JS
Edit------ I checked underneath of the HD, i saw four labels corresponding to the columns of jumper pins, there are 8 pins, 2x4'
Column 1, SSC, Column 2, PM2, Column 3, OPT 1, Column 4, OPT 2
Does this help?

Hey, I'm glad you brought that up. I'm looking at the diagram on my Hard drive, i can't believe I didn't notice it before. There is a small picture of the jumpers, and two labels. I'll type them as I see it
Jumpered Pin 1 and 2 Enable SSC (Spread Spectrum Clocking)
Jumpered Pins 5 and 6 enable SATA 150MB/s only operation.
Damn, this thing didn't come with any jumper heads I guess you can call them, the pieces you use to connect the jumpers. I'm heading to the junk shop now, I'll post to see if it did work after all. I'll be back.
