ppuskari is bang on. In my case the front panel USB block had the hole blocked off where the number 9 pin on the motherboard is so it was Dremel time to clear it.
Jumpered 8 to 7 and 7 to 9, enabled Front USB in the Bios and it worked. I never tried enabling Front USB in the bios only, worth a shot to someone. I'm not gonna take the jumper wires out now.
Now does anyone know how to hook up a Front Audio cable block to the AFP2 port?
