Ok, the good news is, I got BIOS to finally recognize my HDD.
But, I'm still getting the same message coming up about the drivers when I try installing Windows.
Any ideas?

So maybe something in your PC doesn't have the correct drivers eg: Sound card or Graphics Card. Does your PC have an OS installed currently or did you wipe it?

MindoverMaster Aww come on!! I was 2 seconds behind this sucks. lol

This is a brand new build and there was never an OS on it.

Check to see what setting your BIOS is in for storage controller: RAID, AHCI, etc.. If it's in RAID, switch it to AHCI.
