Are you certain that the SATA controller is correctly activated in the BIOS (RAID is not activated, etc)?
Are you certain that your SATA drive is functioning properly?

This problem is pecular to the Asus K8N-DL, which is a popular motherboard for desktop dual processing. Even though this is a popular board, I cannot recommend it for Linux at all. Mine eventually stopped working altogether.

To gnomegiant: You're going to have to use the silicon image controller rather than the nforce controller on your motherboard. Supposedly it's fixed now, but I'm skeptical.
