Based on what you have provided so far, i'm going to guess that your motherboard is set to do AHCI. So try looking for a bios toggle for AHCI/IDE and see if that fixes it.

Bear in mind that if you want to use AHCI, you will likely need to slipstream the drivers and reinstall. But sticking with IDE would work fine in most instances.
