    Chances are you'll need to use drivers so the install can find the HD. It's the same with the Windows setup. You've gotta press F6 at the start of the install to load up the SATA drivers, so it can then find the drives... That's what happened with me anyways.

    (Found an interesting discussion <a href="http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/archive/8/2003/06/4/65817">here</a> if you want a look)

    I know Windows requires third-party RAID drivers, but I am not sure about SATA. Mine was recognized and I installed windows without a hitch, without having to install any drivers myself. Perhaps Linux, or your drive work a little differently.

    Ah, good point. That's what I forgot to mention. Mine is a RAID setup, so of course it needed RAID controller drivers... Not sure how it would go with a single SATA drive.
