Motherboard not recognizing SATA connection

Motherboard completely fails to detect (at BIOS level) any hard drives or DVD drives attached via sata.
I don't have a known working IDE drive to test, plus I want sata so that doesn't much matter.
I have since updated the BIOS to latest version with no change.

Is my mobo bad?

  1. What MB do you have? It is my experience that USB3.0 ports do not work or have serious problems until the USB3.0 drivers are loaded. Try a 2.0 port?

    It is an MSI K9N2 Diamond. I am referring to SATA ports internally not USB ports. USB ports operate normally and permit booting.

    Sorry, I misread your post. Looks like the board might be bad. Especially if you have tried several known working devices.
