    Default GA-MA770T-UD3P wont recognize SATA HDD for Windows 7 install

    Hi all,

    sorry for starting a new thread, but i:m kindo of at my wits end i have spent over 20 hrs now, over 2 days, trying to get my PC to work

    i finished building it the other day so it has no OS or anything on it...

    here are the parts

    AM3 Phenom 945
    Gigabyte GA-Ma770T-UD3P rev 1.0
    G skill ripjaws 2x2gb DDR3 1333
    HDD Seagate SATA 500gb HDD
    HIS 5770
    Lian li PC-K58
    Sony OEM SATA DVD writer
    SEAsonic M12 II 500W PSU

    trying to install windows 7 OEM 64bit

    bascically everything goes fine until windows asks me where i want to install it - but it cant find my HDD - and gives me the option to load drives for the SATA but i tried downloading them from the gigabyte website but they are the wrong ones

    the HDD is set to IDE i tried AHCI but i coulnt get to the boot screen
    tried moving the SATA cables to various combinations
    was able to format my HDD from dos, run and scan disk and no errors, also BIOS recognizes the drive so I figure the HDD is OK
    also when I tried to put my old HDD with and old copy of windows XP on it got stuck on the windows loading screen and then reset it self and that kept on looping...

    not really sure where to go from here as I have no OS to play with and \i cant seem to find any drives to get my pc to recognive the HDD/SATA... the ones gigabyte offers are for RAID and AHCI...

    maybe ill try downloading a linux OS and see if i can get an install from there? but really i:m ready to give up its been too long

    Scroll down and download the driver AMD SATA AHCI Driver (Preinstall driver, press F6 during Windows* setup to read from floppy)

    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-MA770T-UD3P (rev. 1.0)

    When you setup Windows 7 use this driver. TIP: Do not allow Windows to search for best AHCI driver select the one you downloaded and installed on a floppy or usb drive.
    This is your motherboard manual---->

    Follow the Windows Vista AHCI instructions. Starting on Page 73. Do not select RAID select AHCI.
