I think I give up on this SATA bullshit, I can't get windows to see it, I can't get the bios to admit it exists, I can't persuade any of the utilities or diagnostics to do anything other than complain. I think the route to success now involves putting the drive in a sock and using it to club the bloke who said I should totally, definitely go with a SATA drive because they're like... great.

Yeah, apparantly its built into the motherboard, there are two SATA sockets there. There are supposed to be some PROMISE sockets either side of a similarly named chip but oddly enough where the webpage says there should be a chip and sockets there is merely empty space!. Which puzzles me, but I wasn't going to plug them in there anyway.
