Is the drive getting power? Do you hear it spinning up? I've got that board, and it recognized my drive right away.
If you have one of those multi-flashcard/USB port adapters that fits in a drive bay, disconnect it until your OS is installed. Otherwise, your mobo may put all the flashcard slots at earlier drive letters. Mine wanted to use drive I: for my Maxtor at first for that reason. I took the device out, and had no problems.
