you should not need to load drivers before loading os. If you dont see a hard drive in the box, check youre cables. what kind of drive is it. if it is an ssd did you set your bios to achi? is the drive over 2 tb if so what mobo do you have
I checked the cables and its connected to the sata sockets in the motherboard (this is my first build so idk what looks right or not), my mother board is the gigabyte z77 d3h and my drive is a Seagate barracuda 1tb 7200. In the bios I have that set the IDE is that right?
