Maybe it's not the SATA/RAID drivers you need. Go to a computer which has the internet+ floppy, go to the mobo's website, and then get the drivers.

E6300 w/ AF7 Pro 3.11ghz
Gigabyte DS3
2GB G.Skill DDR2 800
7900GT w/ Zalman vf900 650/800
Z-5500 Digital Speakers
22" Chimei + 19" BENQ
XClio 3060

After that it says to press enter to continue so I do so. And it just says the same thing: " no drive was detected, please make sure all ....." . I am just short on patience with this thing and there are getting shorter with every F*** me message I get.
Your impatience and profanity aren't going to get your questions answered any faster, it just makes you look like an immature 10 year old. Before you pee your pants over there, the first thing you should do, if you haven't already done so, is boot your computer without any disks. Go into the BIOS. Check to make sure the hard drive is recognized in the BIOS. If its not then you don't have it hooked up right. Check SATA and Power connections. If it is recognized, maybe you're using the wrong drivers?

Are you completely sure the motherboard supports SATA 3.0Gb/s? If it is then you DO NOT need a jumper, but if for some reason you are mistaken and the motherboard only supports SATA 150, then you might need the jumper to enable backwards compatibity.
