Hello Farbods0, and welcome to Seven Forums.

On page 49 of your motherboard's manual (PDF file), check in BIOS to make sure that you have the Onchip SATA controller enabled with the type set to AHCI.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

On page 47 of your motherboard's manual as reference, you would just need to make sure that the USB drive is listed first in the boot order, then the HDD. Sometimes you may need to reverse that boot order if during the first reboot during the installation it boots from the USB drive again instead of continuing with the installation.

You should be able to use the Hard Disk option for the HDD, and USB-HDD for a USB drive.

You might check to see if the HDD and CD drive works while connected to another computer to help rule out if they are bad or not.

Well, since you have the SATA ports enabled in BIOS, it looks like you may have a defective motherboard.
