just for giggles, I downloaded and sped read the manual for that board...

read yours, and you will find that you apparently need to install some drivers or somesuch to use those IDE inputs...

Ok so are you using SATA or IDE HDDs?

If you are using IDE, run the setup CD that came with your motherboard, that will most likely contain the IDE drivers.
