You may need drivers but I've yet to have a SATA connection on the MB needing special drivers to install Windows, unless a RAID array was being installed.
First check your BIOS settings for first boot device, not boot order.
Cannot be more specific as MB was not listed and unable to look in manual for correct terms and location of setting.
If you have a USB memory card reader disconnect this device during Windows install. This also will cause issues or shove Windows down to the last drive letter of installed devices.
I have a WD 120 G Sata drive. Have used the tool from WD that you boot from the CD and it initializes the disk. All goes well.
Install Windows from the CD and at the end it complains that that it didn't find any drivers for the hard disk and quits.
Have tried formating the drive with a Dos as well as wiping it clean, same result.
