Thanks guys for the tips and suggestions.

But, I already tried those things and the problem is still the same. It's not the OS. the problem is really in my mobo. Here's the data of my mobo:

Computer Brand Name: MSI MS-7176
Motherboard Model: MSI MS-7176
Motherboard Chipset: Intel 945G (Lakeport-G) + ICH7(R)
Intel Active Managenet Technology (iAMT): Supported
Intel Quick Resume Technology (Energy Lake): Not Supported
SATA AHCI: Not Supported
SATA RAID0/1/10: Not Supported
SATA RAID5: Not Supported
6 PCI Express x1 Ports: Not Supported
BIOS Manufacturer: American Megatrends
BIOS Date: 04/26/06

As you could see, the SATA AHCI is not supported. I like to try updating the bios but i read a lot of risk doing it so I'm still looking for the best remedies for this.

Another questions guys, is it ok if I use an external HDD enclosure and put my 500gb SATA HDD and install the O.S. on it? Will it work properly?

So it won't see it on ANY of the four SATA ports on your mobo? I am assuming that your optical drive is IDE/ATA?

Yes Sir, my optical drive is an IDE device. I already tried on it's four SATA ports but it's still have the same problem.

I want to try updating the BIOS but I read a lot of risk doing it that's why I'm kinda hesitant to do it even though I already have a copy of the updated BIOS and I dont know how to update BIOS using a thumb drive.

There are some bad effects if it goes wrong, but it rarely goes wrong.

Thumbdrive updates easy. You just boot to the bios, or appropriate screen.

However, msi says to use their liveupdate thing to do it.
