Well it needs sata drivers... can't you goto your manufacturer website and get them and download them to a disk and when it asks put the disk in?

What are you trying to do with the hard drive? Is it for a clean windows install?

Could you go into the BIOS and turn the SATA settings to the older setting (sometimes called Compatibility mode)
