    Windows won't recognise SATA controllers without drivers which need to be installed from a floppy duriing the Windows install. Your motherboard should have come with a floppy disk with these drivers on them, else you can download them.

    While installing Windows, fairly early on in the install process there will be a message near the bottom of the screen telling you to press F6 now to install 3rd party RAID drivers. At that point press F6 and pop in the floppy disk..

    Windows will then find your hard drives and continue to intall.

    my abit AN8 didn't need the raid disk since all I was doing was using one sata, newer boards already are set up for sata. My msi neo2 plat. didn't either. Go into bios and make sure your sata options (if you have them) are enabled and then auto detect the drive.
