What are you using to reinstall Windows? The Compaq disks provided with the computer should automatically load the SATA drivers.
If you're using another type of disk (or if the Compaq disks don't load the SATA drivers) then you'll have to load them yourself - either by using a USB floppy drive or by slipstreaming them into your installation CD.
You can download the drivers by entering your OS information on this page: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechS...&taskId=135
EDIT: This post has some more info about loading SATA drivers: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=703596
