in the last shot, turn down your cpu protect temp. its at 90C right now, which seems high. I dont know what it should be for that chip, but my guess is it should be lower.
next was the boot order. set it to floppy, cdrom, then sata. this is useful for those rare times that you need to boot to a floppy, and it doesnt hurt to have it set that way all the time.
on your secondary IDE channel, is the master device a hard drive? it would be better to put that on IDE1, and keep the CD on IDE 2. CD drives have slower transfer rates, and pull the hard drive down to the slower speed.
otherwise, you have everything enabled correctly for the sata to boot. its gotta just be the driver now.do you have any via drivers as an option when you try to load? I see its listed as part of the sata driver package on their website.

i'm don't quite understand you on your secondary ide channel or ide1 or cd on ide 2. sorry i'm kinda stupid lol... but if you are talking about picture DSC02139? if you are then i'm my master that is under the NONE AND NONE its a cd drive.. i don't have any hard drives on it right now...
here are the shots.....

make sure you have the sata drive plugged into the sata1 port on the mobo.
the maxtor sata drive should have come with a CD containing the maxblast software. this is a bootable CD, and will allow you to format the drive. do that.
the second thing shouldnt really matter, as windows will likely want to format again once it sees the drive (during the install), but it wont hurt to try it.

yeah, on the downloaded drivers, it mentions via drivers. I cant see why it would need those, since you dont have a via chipset on the board.
im gonna check something real quick, hang on...

I was right, its the SIL3112 driver. make sure you select the right one for your OS.
hopefully this will get you going. Im heading out the door, but will check in later tonite or tommorow to see how you got on.
