    Hey guys, hoping you can help, i have tried everything...
    I have a ASUS CM5570 desktop, this originally had a 640GB SATA drive that crashed. I replaced the drive with an identical one, couldnt get the machine to see it, in other words woulds boot to it, so I tried a different drive, a 120GB SATA drive, I was able to load an image on it and it works fine.....Still cant get the SATA drive to show up, EXCEPT if I connect it via USB...just to try, I got another 640GB SATA drive and had the same result. Any ideas? I am actually repairing this for a friend....Thanks for your help!!

    Can you see this drive in the BIOS?

    Yes I can see it in BIOS. The OS I have installed on the 120gb drive is xp
