    I've built nine systems with that motherboard. No problems whatsoever. What model/make hard drive? Make sure you turn the power supply switch to off and check your ribbon cable and make sure you haven't bent any pins over. If all is ok, try removing any jumpers from the hard drive, turn the power supply switch on and start it up. Good luck!

    Have you copied the SATA drivers to a floppy and pressed F6 when you get the message "Press F6 to load RAID or third-party drivers"

    If you do that with the floppy disc in the drive, it will load the SATA drivers when it needs them.
