Default SATA Driver Problems


I got this motherboard just now:

And also I got a new SATA hard drive (Raptor). Now the problem I am having is that my computer does not see my hard drive and thus I can not install windows. I read you can put the drivers on a floppy disk and then install them, but I can not figure this out. Can someone help me with this problem. I don't even know where to get the drivers from. I am pretty lost.

If you don't understand what I mean, if you look at the reviews for the motherboard you will see what I mean.

I really want to get this working ASAP, because I have work that needs to be done on my computer.

Your motherboard should have come with a sata driver disk. when you go to install windows hit F6 when it asks to load third party drivers. from there you should be able to set it up. if not, then google sata drivers and you should be able to download some to put to a floppy and install the same way.
