Help with installing windows 7 on Velociraptor

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a 300gb GLFS velociraptor that I'm trying to use as my primary hard drive but when I go to install windows, the installer tells me I need the drivers in order to access the hard drive. (something like that) I have no idea what to do.
I know the hard drive works. I have it plugged in right now and windows recognizes it as local disk E:

Please help me because google didn't.

You need SATA controller (or southbridge) drivers.

We need to know your motherboard model to help you.

You may also need to look into what mode your controller is set to in the BIOS - IDE, AHCI, or RAID?

My motherboard is a biostar th55b HD.

How would I check what mode the controller is set to?

In your BIOS, there should be an option regarding storage or something like that.
