Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

Indeed, 7.5A on 2kV will do damage, even if for 1ns. That is the punch ESD can carry.
Rhombus, just be glad you bought it from Newegg...
Good luck and let us know when you get the new one if it solves it.

I thought about it, but as you said you have a working SATA DVD I do beleive it is the HDD, not the Mobo.
Do you have a friend you could ask to plug your HDD just to test it? You don't need to do anything, just connect it and go the the BIOS to see if it is recognized. If not, it is surely the HDD. But it does look like it, given the blank setting that followed it
