    You are correct in thinking Windows 7 has SATA drivers. In some cases, it may not have RAID drivers, or perhaps some variant of the IDE/AHCI/RAID controller. Did the Laptop come with Ubuntu pre-installed?

    How is your drive set up right now? Do you have empty space or an NTFS partition on the drive?

    I don't think I have tried to install Windows after Ubuntu, but possibly that is having an effect. Perhaps Grub in interfering.
