Gigabyte MB will not recognise OCZ SSD

My friend has a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 MB, and a OCZ Octane S2 SSD. The main problem is the MB will not recognise the SSD at all. I tried updating the BIOS to F9b which is the latest the one, tried moving the sata cable to different positions on the board, changed BIOS settings to AHCI, and back to Native IDE. Nothing works. In the BIOS under Standard CMOS Features it will not show up with any HDD info for the SSD. Also booting up with Windows 7 Disc, after booting up to the window where it allows you to pick which HDD to install Windows on, it does not show any HDD or SSD.
Is there something I am doing wrong. I thought these new drives are supposed to be very user friendly. I watch videos of others installing their SSD's for the first time and Windows bootup picks it up right away.
Could this be a DOA SSD.
Thanks in advance,
