I still do not see this as needing SATA drivers Of all the win7 I have done so far, I have yet needed to load any SATA drivers. Just did an install on Dec 31st, on a 1tb Samsung SATA HD. I pre-formatted it as one big partition, on another computer. Wam, Bam, 20 minute install If the HD is pre-formatted, the win7 installer should not need to format it again, just copy the files & install.
With as many errors as you have had, it sounds like corrupted win7 install files, not the HD's!
I would find somebody with a win7 DVD, to borrow from, to try

Okay - Here's the current Status

I have installed Windows 7 from the original DVD to an old IDE HD.

I used the SATA DVD drive and MS Win 7 Dvd and successfully installed. However I am still unable to see the SATA HDs. In fact I borrowed a WD 80GB Sata drive and also was unable to see it.

I am in the process of running windows updates.

As of right now under device manager - Disk Drives - I have 2 listing
Disk Drive
WDC WD800BB etc

I am still unable to see the SATA HD.

After 50 updates and multiple reboots last night I have an "up-to-patch" Windows 7 install to a local IDE drive.

That said, I am now able to see the Seagate 500GB Sata drive as RAW. I am in the process of formatting the drive. This afternoon I will attempt a windows install to the local hard drive.

I saw your edit thanks for this info. When I was reseaching the issue it seemed there was a batch of bad broads produced last year/year .5 ago.

Unfortunately neither the box nor the board have a rev version that I could find. The info I found referenced CPU Parameter in the recall, did you see something referencing the SATA channel?

When I attempted to format Sata HD through device manager - formatting hung.

Then when i attempted to format via DiskPart I get an I/O error = Diskpart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

I am seriously spent....Now I can't even see the RAW SATA HD

Is it possible that I have received (2) Asus M4a79xtd evo motherboards? That is some seriously poor luck eh?

This does sound really bad. What other brand of MB will work with your CPU, etc.
I have good luck with Gigabyte MB's, that what I just did on Dec 31st.


Edit:

your CPU CPU - AMD PHENOM II x4 945 3.0G AM3

should work with most any Gigabyte AM3 MB :)
