onthebeach, you do not "install a driver" when you add a new HDD to your PC.

HDs are plug and play. If your board does not detect it, you may have:

Not installed the drive correctly(check your jumpers)
Not formatted your drive(use a util provided by your manufacturer)

No support for such a drive(your motherboard controller does not support that kind of drive). Example-> ATA100 drive on a ata33-66 controller. ATA100+ drives have a removed pin on their connect. Old mobos may not support such a drive.
