Vista doesn't need drivers when you select AHCI, it should work without any additional configuration or setup. Regardless of what data is on the disk, it should always be detected and given a partition table you can edit. Are you saying this is not the case?
It was a brand new harddrive in a brand new system that did not detect under the vista install untill I booted and ran the partition magic I had a few issues there 2 at first reported bad. I ran a harddrive diagnostic utility and then when I ran partition magic a second time everything detected ok. It may have picked up in windows after I did that but I didnt want to waste any more time
