Unplug all the drives from your system except the SATA drive you are trying to install. Then go about the setup as normal and see if it shows up.

Also make sure in your BIOS that the SATA/RAID controller is enabled. If it's not on, then it doesn't matter if you install drivers because the actual controller isn't enabled to detect any devices.
