Default Installations not recognizing HDD

XP Pro installation can recognize my HDD in my Hypersonic Aviator GX7 laptop quite fine... I'm using it right now.

Quite obviously, my computer recognizes these hard drives as I am running the OS off of it at the moment.


Since this is a second computer, I use it for experiments... installing Vista beta 2 to see how it is, installing Mac OSx86 to see if it'll run on it, installing benchmark copies of Windows to see how they are, etc. Except, I can't do any of that, because none of these OS installers recognize my hard drives... I have the Intel 8280 1eb Ultra ATA controller - it SHOULD operate off of generic drivers that installers use.


Any ideas/advice?

I've tried jumpers set to Master, and Cable Select. The drive is a 60gb Hitachi.
