Motherboard: Asus P5VD2-VM SE
Hard drive : 80GB ExcelStor J880s SATA series
Optical Drive: LG CDROM

Try installing the latest version of Ubuntu. This would be Ubuntu Hardy 8.04. Hardy has a newer kernel which will likely have better hardware support for your motherboard. Ubuntu 7.04 is over a year old. This guy says it works with Ubuntu. From the date of his post I would assume he was running Ubuntu 7.10:

This website says it works with Fedora 6 and Red Hat 4.0:

If you still have trouble with Ubuntu 8.04, then try different options in the BIOS. Disable RAID if you have it enabled. If there is an option in the BIOS for "IDE compatibility mode" or something like that for the SATA ports then try that.

...And welcome to the LQ forums!

Is your sata plugin enabled?

Does your sata drive work on another operating system? It might possibly not be enabled on your motherboard if you haven't had it working at all on the new computer. If you think this might be the case, you can check in your bios. Cheers.

You should be installing 8.04 instead. 7.04 is now unsupported an is too old to handle Sata without using special boot options or changing settings in BIOS.
