What are your SATA BIOS options set to ? I have such a board and I 
recall having to change the mode of the SATA controller for it to 
work. I think its turning off legacy mode. I also seem to recall 
having to fiddle with some USB options as well.

I was running 6.1 and recently upgraded the box to RELENG_6 as of oct 
25 and the box continued to work fine.
