I have a Asus x99a motherboard and I cannot get the sata to work. It had detected my drives only twice and I have no idea why. It detects my usb stuff but not sata. I don't have a DVD sata to use since mine is broke so I use a usb DVD. I updated the bios to the newest and still nothing. I have 3 drives it detected 2 of them. Yes I tried using different cables and ports.

Doesn't detect it when trying to install Windows or in bios.

Most likely cause would be a faulty motherboard.

Restore the BIOS back to factory default, then reboot and ensure the SATA ports are enabled. Also check the SATA drive type (ie: AHCI, IDE, RAID). You will likely want IDE mode.

Aside from that, if the drives aren't detected by the BIOS, there is a hardware fault (ie: motherboard, cable, HDD).
