A55 (8982-77G) - Windows 7 & SATA Hard Drive Problem

Hi, Hoping someone can help here. I have just purchased the above system, it came without a Hard drive as it was purchased from a business. I have installed a 200GB Seagate SATA Hard Drive and I'm trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate .. the HD is recognised by the BIOS and POST, but the windows 7 installer does not see it, I've looked for the relevant drivers for the motherboard .. but cannot find them anywhere. I have tried setting the BIOS SATA setting to Auto and Serial ATA only with no success .. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Regards
