well it depends. some hd/raid arrays need drivers installed before you install windows... u do the F6 thing.

and sometimes the problem is that something is set wrong in the bios. I had a problem like this w/ my Dell. I reformated and went to reinstall windows but windows couldn't recognize my hd. I had to change a setting in the bios... even though it worked before w/ the original settings Dell must have installed some driver to get windows to find my hd... and since Dell didn't give me the driver I had to improvise.

well if it's a SATA hd make sure it searches for a SATA hd first. Also, there is probably an option to turn on and off each SATA port independtly... so make sure the specific port your hd is plugged into is turned on.
