Very odd. Can you try a different cable just to rule that out?
I'll perhaps try that tonight. I'm Teamviewering from work right now so I can do anything in windows or reboot, can't do anything in the BIOS remotely, or switch cables.
Read that I have to disable the marvell controller in the BIOS in order to force it to load the Intell port AHCI drivers or something like that. Interesting....
