  1. Is this a new SATA drive that you installed? If so, it must be formatted (NTFS) first.
  2. If the drive is indeed not detected in BIOS, they you can try

    Change the cables
    Change the SATA port
    See of this is one of the annoying motherboards (I doubt it) that requires individual ports to be enabled in the BIOS

    Is this a new drive, or one with data on it? Was it in that machine before?
