I would check to make sure the sata cables are plugged in and see if they are being reconised in the bios.

Normaly there is an option were you can look and see devices. Sometimes you have to play with the boot device to see all of attached devices.

Gigabyte,
We enjoy helping people here, but we do have lives and jobs outside of the forums. As much as I would love to be paid to lurk here all day I don't :P

Can you take a picture of all of the screens for your bios since I don't have a machine running that one?

If you went into the Boot Sequence of the BIOS, you should see the devices. If not, then you have a cabeling problem.

Please review the Gigabyte documentation for your motherboard.

Then check the cables.

You have either a motherboard setting/jumper wrong or
you have a cable problem or a
connection problem.
