Ok guys. I am building a new machine with a Seagate Barracuda SATA 80 GB and an Asus A7V8X-X mobo. Since the mobo has no onboard SATA interface, I have installed an SATA PCI host adapter. Here's the deal; the host adapter seems to work fine, but no sign of the hdd in either CMOS/BIOS or DOS. The hdd spins up, I checked, and the CMOS is set to auto-detect. I have built dozens of machines, but this is my first SATA drive. Anyone have any ideas?
