You know when you see Press f6 to install SCSI or SATA drives?

Find a floppy disc with your SATA drivers on it, and press f6

Have yopu tried every sata driver choice there is? Have you tried a different sata port? Have you gone into the bios and told it to search for all drives?

check the motherboard driver disk if you have it. most likely the controller needs the dirvers not the harddrive itself.
