Windows 7: SATA hardisk detected as IDE in BIOS. Please help

SATA drives don't use jumpers, the SATA header determines its position, SATA_0, SATA_!, etc. The IDE drives do use jumpers since two can be on one IDE header. If you have only one IDE drive you can try Master or Cable Select.

Hello Britton30
I also tried by removing both IDE Disk and IDE DVD writer and keep only SATA drive without jumper. But BIOS still detect SATA disk as IDE drive.
I am very much tense.

I think you're OK, it shows you have SATA in your device manager snip.

Look in the manual.

Look in section 3.4.4 Storage Configuration, of the UEFI setup, and you'll find AHCI configuration under SATA Mode Selection.

Have you found the UEFI setup in BIOS? That is the place to look for the AHCI settings.

I believe your board pre-dates UEFI BIOS. It was made before Vista so had no need for it.
