Problem Installing Windows 7

#1
I am trying to install windows 7 64-bit fresh on my computer.
When I get to the step which asks me where I would like to install it, my hard drive does not show up and the list is empty.

Specs:
asus p5n32-e sli motherboard
320 gb Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATA HDD
Nvidia geforce 8800gts 320 mb
OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 Platinum Dual Channel ram

I researched that you might have to upload a raid/sata driver to make it work.
Can someone give me a tutorial or steps I could take in successfully installing Windows 7 on my machine
Thanks

OK. Your hard drive cable might actually be loose.
Take the cover off your computer, and check all the cables to and from the hard drrive

I reinstalled a fresh copy of vista recently, and the hard drive showed up no problem. It's when i try installing windows 7 the hard drive does not show up.

Ok, going with your initial comment on the RAID/SATA drivers...
You'd have to contact Seagate to see what they could do for you as RAID drivers are a hard thing to find.

there's the contact info for them
