it is almost as if the cables have not fully seated in the sockets so try that. Also look in the bios and make sure sata is enabled. It can be turned off by odd things. I used to be SAP certified but the company I was with went into liquidation. I always refer to it as simply a pig - wonderful when it is set up correctly and working but really difficult when not.
