oh that makes sense then
when you started installation windows asks if you need to install RAID or other 3rd party drivers and i believe Serial ATA drives require special drivers (you may want to google that) but thats all i can think of

I would check the bios and make sure that the speed registers correctly there. All bios's are different but you'll have to search around to find that section, my guess would be in advanced settings. If this is a motherboard not a dell or hp ect. check the motherboard settings sheet and make sure all the jumpers are set correctly. Then try flashing the bios. Good luck.
