    Hello, my friend here is trying to install windows vista on his new PC that I built for him (specs below),he has the installation disk in hand. All goes well until he reaches "the select your drive" screen. His hard drive does not show up.
    His motherboard does not have an IDE port for his hard drive, so he got one of these : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815280009&Tpk=15-280-009
    The hard drive has been detected in Ubuntu, but not here. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    PC specs:

    Biostar h61 MLB motherboard
    Intel celeron g530 dual core 2.40ghz processor
    1 stick of 4gb gskill ripjawsX ram
    430w thermaltake psu

    Download the drivers from the website onto a flash drive. During the install it should ask if you need to load raid/scsi drivers. Click on that and point it to the driver you downloaded and see if that works.
