Trying to install Win 7 64 bit onto my new Sata WD 500GB Hard Drive. The manual says that if I dont want to use raid then I have to go to the bios and change the Sata settings to AHCI, which I did. During boot up at the botom of the screen I see this mesage: AHCI Port 0 device Error, press F1 to continue, which I did. I get as far as the Windows Is Loading Screen and that is it, plenty of light on the Case indicates HD activity so I left it for a while but realised it was not working.
I then went back into Bios changed the Sata settings to IDE, Windows went to the Gatering information screen tried to load the drivers but it would not recognised them.

Any Advice welcomed.
