Will our Hard Drives get damaged or will the motherboard just cease to recognise it's sata ports?

I'm not going to use my PC if it ends up damaging other parts. But I'm assuming it only affects the motherboard and that the sata ports will die and not recognize all the ports etc.
There is virtually no fear of data loss. The problem exists internally, within the SATA circuity of the chipset, so at worst you will simply loose the connection to all SATA 2 Ports (ports #2-5 typically), but it will not affect the devices hooked up to it at all.
