I put a WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB cache SATA 3.0Gb/s HDD in a new PC that I just built. The PC turns on fine, but in BIOS, it lists my HDD as a slave no matter what SATA port I plug it in to. When I try to install Windows 7, I get to the point where it asks “Where do you want to install Windows?” and it says “No drives were found”. Then I click on “Search for drivers” (it may have been worded silghtly differently) and it shows a “Local Disk: C” but if I click on it it says that I need to configure it; if I click on the link to configure it, it says the disk cannot be accessed, and to please install the drivers and insure that it is not read-only.
Does anyone know what the problem could be?
Thanks in advance!!!
EDIT: My mobo is a Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3
