Now i have been doing some searching and reading other posts on this to no help. The things i have tried have been to make sure the Optical is the master and HDD is the slave on IDE channel 0. I have made sure im using a VGA cable during the installation. Tried different Sata cables. As well as downloading the drivers on the motherboard from here and including these drivers. Windows said none of them are correct.
AMD Chipset Driver (include chipset \ sata raid driver)
GIGABYTE SATA2 Preinstall driver
AMD SATA RAID Driver
AMD SATA AHCI Driver
None of those drivers have allowed me to see the HDD during installation and nothing else has helped. I have no idea what to do or whats wrong. So any other information you require just let me know otherwise any help will be grateful. Thank you ahead of time for any help.
