this doesn't help , as i am not trying to install anything, i just want to boot into this hard drive.
I'm looking through the manual, and it hasn't helped much yet.

Which SATA ports are you using? sata0, 1, and 2?
Have you tried setting it for RAID, and looking in the RAID setup?
Is there an OS on the SCSI drives?
