I recently finished everything in my first build, except for the harddrive because mine came broken in the box, and ncix finnally sent me a new one. So when i go to install Windows 7, It gets to the point where the Select A Drive To Instll Windows 7 Too, And the Harddrive Does Not Show Up D:? If you have any idea, Let me know. (I saw 10s/100s of posts on this, havent seem to get an answer. I have no idea about this bios, It does not show CMOS Settings. I have A Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Mobo, With Bios Version F13.) Hard Drive Is A Seagate Barricuda 1000 Gb Btw.

For some reason the Windows install wants to load a driver for some hard drives and you may not actually have to load one but you may have to go to the scxreen for that. At the bottom of the screen that y6our at for selecting a drive to load the OS there is a button for load driver that you can select. Seagate may actually have a driver for that hard drive , I don't know it's been some time since I had a Seagate.

Make sure that the drive is connected to the Intel controlled sata port 0.

Make sure you have power and the sata cable connected first. Then go to bios and see if it shows up, if it does you should be all set. The windows 7 install disk can format the new drive just pick the format option once you get to the select a drive screen.
