Hey, I'm diligently trying to install a SATA hard drive (Western Digital 160GB) with my ASUS K8V SE Deluxe and the damn thing wont recognize it at all. I can only connect it with a SATA cable (no ribbon option, which is what the previous HDD was) and the motherboard has four SATA connections. I've gone into the BIOS menus and it seems to recognize it somewhat but when I try to reinstall windows, it eventually informs me that there is no HDD to detect. WTF?!!!?!?!?!?!
I've built a few custom machines and never once have I come across anything as lame as this.
Please help me before I go completely insane!
