I just bought a Western Digital 2 TB drive for my newly built computer. I plugged in my SATA connector from the back of the harddrive to the 6gp/s SATA ports on my motherboard. None of them would work. The harddrive was not recognized in the BIOS or when booting linux from a cd and choosing "Install" to a harddrive. I have yet to try the 3 gp/s cord with the corresponding SATA port, but I'm pretty sure that it would not work. I have enabled Hot Plug in BIOS and still no luck. Any help please?

I've looked all through-out BIOS and I can not find it
