Switched from intel motherboard

Hello,
I switched from an intel motherboard to an amd one after installing windows 8 and new board will not recognize that there is a HDD connected. Is it a possible conflict with previously installed drivers or is it possible that my HDD is fried?

    you could try to do a repair install but you should just start over from scratch...

    i tried the repair install first, but there was a conflict with drive partition types, so i ended up deleting the partitions and formatting the drive so i could do a clean install
