Oh and could it be that drivers need to be installed on the windows installation?
That made me think windows was installed for some reason, don't know why.

Uhh, try setting the drives for AHCI or w/e it's called? -.-

well then you are doing something wrong and the first driver was fine...
start from this: connect both and in BIOS make the hdd the first boot device.
