Trouble with SATA install

This is a fresh install with new components,MB Jetway V600DAP, Maxtor 80GB SATA HD, Athlon XP2500+ Barton.My PC recognises the drive but when booting it gets to the stage of scanning for devices, lists my drive correctly, gives me the option of pressing TAB to get to the user window, which it does. Here my drive is listed correctly and connected correctly, Serial_CH0 Master,but the window to create, delete array and selct boot array is shadowed and I cant acces it. There is another window which gives the options of pressing F1,??,Enter and ESC, but the only option that does anything is the ESC to exit this utility.
Does anyone have a clue as to whats going on, I'm getting frustrated now
Thanks
