Default Hard drives

I recently purchased a new motherboard (ABIT IC-7G) and hooked all my old components up. Everything works fine except for the hard drives which sucks because they are the worst thing that could out. I had two drives, both western digital and they were both working before I switched the motherboard. One was the primary and other I backed my system up using Norton Ghost. The one drive would not even be recognized by the motherboard and I had a friend hook it up to his drive. No luck, so I took it as bad luck and ordered a new one. The second drive is recognized and Goback comes up but then it states a failure code:gb_ui_system (1147). Does this mean both drives are bad and if so, something seems wrong. How can both drives go out when nothing was running? Can anyone help? Thanks

Maybe you need to install the drivers for the hard drives or you need a BIOS update.
