You didn't state your OS, but I'm guessing that it wants the sata drivers. This is why windows can't detect the drive during installation.

May be is your hard disk's MBR is damage,you can use winhex tool open hard disk,if you can see the hard drive in winhex,so the hard disk's mbr is damage.

You need to install the sata or ahci drivers, depends on wha tyou have the sata ports set as in the bios.

You can also set the ports to legacy or IDE mode and windows will install without needing drivers.
