Okay, this this the 3rd computer I've built, but the first on an MSI board.
I helped my friend build it because it's his first build. The problem I'm

proper. The drive has the Molex connector connected to it and it spins up.
The drive is raw and unformatted. The jumper is set to 'cable select' and
it's using the correct 80 wire cable.

port is supposedly part of according to the manual. However, the only
settings are 'Disable', 'SATA', and 'RAID'. There is another SATA setting
for enabling the Promise controller and it's set to enable. However, no
drive is detected. The drive is fine, as it's detected in the regular ATA
