SATA and IDE are the same. You have to disable RAID if you're not using it. I had a very similar problem with my Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI, it would not pick up any of my HDD's except in the RAID utility. Which I wasn't using.

I then turned the RAID function off (changed it to act like IDE) and it worked. It doesn't mean that you are using ATA drives plugged into SATA it means you aren't using RAID.

btw ATA, PATA, SATA, and SATAII are all IDE drives. It's just the data transfer style is different. You can get a connection for ATA - SATA.

So unless you have set up a RAID array, you need to change those bios settings to IDE or it wont work.
