Once you load the drivers for the SATA by pressing F6, it should be able to detect the drive. Is the BIOS detecting the SATA hard drive? I am assuming so, since you say you mirror from another hard drive. Now it boots? If so, that is very strange. Could possibly be a currupt driver for the SATA on the floppy? On the CD? Was currupted during loading? There are some factors involved, although I think it was a fluke.
