Im trying to install windows 7. Where can I get the drivers? Maybe I still need them? I haven't messed with any settings. I've had it go to optimized settings anyway and that doesn't do anythings. Btw the x drive I was talking about wasn't my hard drive.

Have you tried maybe trying other SATA ports? Maybe another HDD?

Yes and yes. I stated in te original post I had tried two hard drives. I have tried multiple cables and ports, including the ones that work with my sata cd/dvd drive.

What are the ports set to in BIOS? Are the set to RAID, AHCI, Legacy (or IDE)? Assuming you don't plan on raiding the disks, try switching to legacy and see if that helps anything.
