The problem im having is that i cant see my hardrive even after selecting the driver. i have triple checked to make sure i have the right one but still nothing. I can see my HD in Bios but when i go to install my OS i cant see it.
Please help me.
P.S Tech support for Gigabyte stinks.
In your OP, you state: The problem im having is that i cant see my hardrive even after selecting the driver.
1> What driver are you selecting, per the above question? You shouldn't need anything but the SATA or the AHCI drivers for your MOBO.
It has to be a driver issue. The BIOS sees the drive, Windows does not = driver problem. Since you've already tried loading the SATA/AHCI from Gigabyte's website, then I would have to believe that the executable didn't work properly, and didn't load the Windows driver for your chipset. When you did try to load the driver, what did the system say regarding the hardware identification?
Ohhh... There's a version 1.0 and 1.1 for your MOBO, but both driver files are the same version and date.
