Track this discussion and email me when there are updates. I took the card back and got another card that has the Via VT chip set. Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

I cannot think of anything else, but if I get any info I will post here.

SIL a SATA PCI Issue with new hard drive. – Forums – CNET

I tried a PS2 keyboard – got the same results. Yes I have the silent boot mode setup in the bios.

Try enabling that but do go try a PS2 keyboard. The properties of the satalink in device manager states: Sorry for the wata post, or if I didn’t provide enough detail. The keyboard works fine. OK, my bad assumption. Right now the most progress I have had is having the drive detect in Windows, but in order for this to happen I disconnect the SATA data cable, boot into Windows, and reconnect the cable while the computer is running.

Did a little satx google work and found this: Wait a minute, don’t flash any bios when you are in a mess like you are.
