Default installing sata

ok...i got my new motherboard and the agp slot works(unlike the last one), but i have a problem. i have a western digital 160 gb sata hard drive, but the computer did not find it. so i followed the directions and set it up so that it recognizes the drive, but when i tried to install windows xp professional it says i dont have a hard drive. does anyone know what might be wrong?
