I had a similar experience doing an FC3 install a couple of weeks ago.
The BIOS default setting for the SATA controller was automatic--not sure
what it means, but Windows worked just fine with it but FC3 couldn't
find the drives. I suspect automatic mode makes the controller look like
a RAID controller. I switched off the automatic mode and onto a non-RAID
SATA mode and FC3 worked just fine. I would play with the BIOS and find
a setting that works.
