Can't see any hdd's in synology assistant

Question

I just installed xpenology for the first time on an old PC. I can finally see the PC in synology assistant but the system can't see any of my HDD's. 
Is there something I have been missing?

I can only select: Raid and non-raid in the bios. The non-raid is active.

Do you know what SATA controller your mainboard is using?

(or the make and model of the mb)

Are your drives "clean" (=no filesystem)?

Yes I cleaned the drives before I put them in. Tried formatting them, cleaning them with disk part,...

The mb is: Asrock ALIVENF6G-GLAN, I don't really know what SATA controller.

@cornekev if my Google skills are working correct, that mb might be using a nForce4 series sata controller, 

if so ... ******* out of luck as the say, that seems to be unsupported so if you want to use the mainboard, you will need to add a compatible disk controller.

Tnx, good to know. I’ll try to ADD the compatibel disk controller. 

Can I find the list with compatibel disk controllers somewhere?

@cornekev As stated by Polanskiman here : " Compatibility of hardware usually depends on the loader you are using and the modules it contains to boot the said hardware"

But I have seen people mention (among others) SybaSI-PEX40062 and Asmedia ASM1061 based controllers.

I installed an Asmedia ASM1061 based controller: I was able to log on to the synology assistant and install the software. Unfortunatly I can't access it anymore, the PC doesn't even have an IP-adress anymore. Does anyone have an idea how this is possible and what I can do about it?

No, I had seen that the 6.2.1 caused a lot of problems. But maybe it’s the same issue. Can I unbrick this? Does it update automaticly? I only clicked on the install button and than I had to answer the door, when I came back, the pc couldn’t find it anymore.

Apparently the unit updated by it self to 6.2 while I was at the door. So I unbricked it using the manual on the forum.
