Default Help with Sata Hd and XP

I finished putting my friends computer together. I pop the xp pro disk in and boot it up everything runs, but when i want to do a fresh install of windows i get a message saying there is no hard drive detected.After the Asus logo i get a message (No Drive connected to fast track Controller) Specs are= Mobo Asus Av8 Amd 3400 Socket 939 4x512mb corsair Dvd rom master dvdr slave and a WD 160Gb Sata. As far as i know sata drives dont need jumpers and this one is connected to the sata 1 slot in the mobo, power connected and i feel its working when its on(vibrations). What do i do now, is there a jumper on the motherboard? Mobo has a Sata 1 Sata 2 Raid 1 Raid 2 plugs. When i go into bios the dvd roms are being detected and the hard drive under via controller. I have it set up to boot from cd.

There is also a setting in bios to enable the SATA divices.
