sata to ide adapter do not see PATA hard drive in the bios?

some people change ide to ahci in the bios then it worked.

some people put drive on master, hey then it worked
Second PATA hard drive not detected in the BIOS? - Yahoo Answers

some people put drive on cs, hey then it worked
SATA to IDE Adapter, Drive Not Detected in BIOS - Hard Drives - Storage

What do I do to make it work for me?
The yellow led lights up
the sata cable plugged into sata port and tried multiple ports.
Under sata configuration I tried AHCI which caused windows to BSOD
I switched that back to IDE

This Asus p5qc has a PATA DVD drive lugged into MB IDE port
And a sata drive plugged into sata port.
And a sata drive plugged into sata port.

Following this guide, i made it so windows boots ok with bios setting to AHCI
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

Still the bios does not show drive with adapter connected.
I have tried 4 HD and a dvd drive.
