Well, I finally got Windows to read my hard drive. Had to set it to AHCI, who would have thought. Glad I could help myself on this forum. >_<
The partition didn't even show up initially. If anyone runs into this program, I ran through these steps. (Copied from another forum)
Run diskpart command from command prompt. (Hit Shift+F10 when it asks for your language on the Windows installer)
Then each of these commands, followed by the enter key after each one.
list disk (to show the ID number of the hard disk to partition, normally Disk 0)
select disk 0 (change 0 to another number if applicable)
clean (this deletes all partitions)
create partition primary size=80000 (creates a partition with 80 GB space; to use the entire disk as one partition, omit the “size=value” parameter switch; use a similar command to create more partitions if needed or create in Windows 7 after installation)
select partition 1
format fs=ntfs quick
Hope this post helps someone in the future!
