Help with installation?

When i am trying to install windows 7 i am encountering a problem. Once i reach the part when i must choose a download location the only option they give me is my external usb hard drive, which i do not want to install windows 7 on. When i search for my c drive (clicking browse) i get the following message: No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK. Does this mean my c drive does not have a driver? I mean why wouldn't it recognize my c drive, my current windows xp is installed on it as i type..? Is there a way to make my computer recognize my freaking hard drive so that i can install windows 7.

  1. i also noticed my hard drive doesn't even show up in device manager?
  2. Check your BIOS to verify, but it seems like your hard drive controller is currently set to RAID mode.
  3. Boot into the BIOS and make sure your type (IDE or SATA) of hard drive is enabled.
