I just built my first computer and need help installing Windows 8. All my parts are brand new and are installed correctly. My problem is, that when i run the OEM installation disc i go through the steps and get to the point where you choose your hard drive. It gives me a message saying it hasn't found any hard drives. Please help.

Motherboard:Gigabyte Z77N-wifi ITX
CPU:Intel core i5 3350p
RAM:HyperX black 8Gs
Hard Drive: Western Digital black 1tb 64mb
GPU: Asus AMD HD 7870 V2
OS:Windows 8

then click Load Driver and it says"No signed device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."
