  1. Ive just built my 1st pc i went to install the OS and it told me that my hdd were not connected to my pc, it would only detect the hdd if i used the RAID function (i dont want to use this feature). I have 3 SATA hdd in my pc. when i go into my computer it tells me there is 1 hdd. My motherboard is GIGABYTE
    GA-K8N Pro-SLI skt 939 nforce4 chipset. Please help ive been trying to sort this out for a week now. :confused: :confused:

    In order for Windows Setup to detect your SATA hard disks, you'll need to press "F6" when Setup is loading, then insert a driver disk for your SATA controller. Usually your motherboard CD will have a driver disk creation utility for this purpose.
