Have you tried multiple SATA ports?

that didnt work. anyways i finally after 3 days of setting up my pc, got it to work

actually i went to the amd website and installed optional drivers package. and it had way better updated drivers. seems like asus is done supporting this motherboard.

but what i did was downloaded from here http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/pages/integrated...

chipset drivers and raid drivers.
put the raid drivers on a usb flash drive.
restarted to bios.
set sata ports to raid instead of ahci.
booted my windows 7 64bit ultimate disk.
loaded the raid drivers from my usb.
installed windows.
and walla.

for some reason the amd ahci compatible raid controller wont get recognized when sata is in ahci mode. this motherboard is wierd. my first gaming build. so i will learn
