also make sure the onboard SATA controller is enabled. this will be under onboard peripherals.

did you find the boot other device option?
please list the make and model of your mobo, I will see if I can find any info. if you have the manual handy, look in there for BIOS settings.

do you have the manual handy? if not, go to this link, and download it.
first check out page 2-25, which mentions a setting for if you are using raid or not. then jump to page 4-24 (section 4.4.3), which is where to adjust that setting in bios. looks like you will need to have the sata bootrom enabled, then set the promise raid controller to disabled. is it correct that there are 2 sets of SATA connectors, one set for normal SATA, the other for raid sata? (check out page 2-24, 2-25)
if so, plug your drive into the first normal sata connector, as seen on p. 2-24.
the via sata driver says raid, but it works for a single drive as well. are you using a disc that came with the mobo?
might be worth grabbing the sata driver from the via site. last time I encountered this with someone, that did the trick. go to this link, select OS, then IDE, raid and sata, then the vt8237 driver.
just when I think I am starting to get it down with sata setup, a whole new way comes up...on the other hand, that mobo can do some serious storage! IDE raid, sata raid, backing each other up...very nice!

WHich SATA port u plug the SATA harddrive to?
IS it the one which specify as SATA_RAID or just SATA.
I'm a bit confused, because when i plug it into SATA, it detect a harddrive. but when i plug it into SATA_RAID, it doesn't detect any harddrive.
WHen i plug it into SATA, i try to installed the window. It wont's allow me, It will say harddrive is not detected in the install process (blue screen).
Can anyone help me?

follow the instructions from this thread about getting the BIOS set correctly to boot to other devices.
next, you will need the sata drivers for your mainboard. they should have come on a disc with the mobo. if not, go to the mobo manufacturers website and download the driver (it may say raid, thats fine).
when loading windows, when it prompts "press F6 to install 3rd party scsi/raid drivers" do that. at the next prompt press S for scsi, then select your drive. windows will then load normally.
