New Proxmox hardware

I have build a new mini server for running Proxmox, i.e.:
- ASRock Z390M-ITX/ac motherboard
- 32 gb of ram
- Intel I7 octa core processor

I am migrating from an old hardware configuration and want to place my old dm-crypt encrypted Samsung 1.5 TB harddisks to the new hardware configuration.
But my system does not recognize them at all, i.e. they don't show up in the bios at all. Not entirely Proxmox related, but thus anybody have an idea?
Have you tried updating the BIOS?
Connected them to another port / controller on the motherboard?
Have you tried to connect the disks to a third machine?
Do you have some SATA -> USB adapter to connect them to another machine to test if they show up then?

Do you hear the disks spin up when you connect them to a power supply?

At that level it's kinda hard to determine the cause.
