Sounds like your hard drive is on the secondary SATA adapter (like a Marvell or JMicron controller). Which plugs on your mobo are the hard drive and CD drive on? Three should be a preinstall driver on your driver CD for the chipset driver to install your OS.

Attatch the HDD to SATA 0(colored white on the left).
