Default Asus P7P55D SATA problems

Hi all,

I wasn't quite sure if this fell more under hard drives or motherboard, but it seems like a SATA problem.While trying to repartition one of my hard disks for a clean Windows 7 install with G-parted, I ran into an odd problem. When both independent drives are plugged into the P55 SATA connectors, neither of the drives shows up. However if I plug one of the drives into the "extra" Jmicron SATA port, the other drive shows up. To compound the problem, if both drives are plugged into the P55 connectors, they show up in the BIOS. I'm wondering what could be the root of this problem, and would it be easily fixable?

Cheers!

Wolf

Update: I used a program to wipe the drive clean, and managed to install 7. However, the drive that I backed up my files to still refuses to show.

Fixed the problem. Turns out it wasn't a problem with the motherboard SATA ports. All I had to do was go into the Windows disk management utility and assign a letter to the drive.
