Default Boot Problem, need assistance

Ok so I just got a new mobo for my comp, and I'm having boot problems. I don't know if its a jumper problem or not, but the BIOS is detecting my hard drive as Third IDE Slave and my cd-rw drive as Third IDE Master. As for Primary and Secondary IDE devices, it doesn't detect a thing. I have my jumpers on my hard drive and cd-rw drive set to "cable select", but there are about four different master and slave choices on the hard-drive.
I'm not sure what exactly the problem is, but I can't even get to windows as my mobo can't detect my hard-drive and therefore will not boot up because it cant find a boot file. Does this have anything to do with the fact the the mobo's drivers are not yet installed, or is something else going on???

Make sure you have the IDE cable plugged into the correct slot on the motherboard.
