Unhappy My SATA HardDrive not detected during installation of XP

Ok, first off here are my systems Specs....

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA 80 GB
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Thermaltake Venus 7+ CPU fan
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
1 GB Corsair PC 3200

Now to the problem.
--Here are the steps I have taken so far--
1. Installed the drive properly in the case.
2. Ran DiskWizard 2003
3. Configured the BIOS

After this I tried to install Windows XP Pro using the CD, and it would go fine untill it came to this ---> http://seagate.com/support/disc/images/sata_detect1.jpg

I downloaded the following Asus driver Promise SATA378 Driver V1.00.0.26 (ATA Mode). I put this on a disk, and ran it when I got to this screen by pressing F6 in the begingin of installation ---> http://seagate.com/support/disc/images/sata_detect2.jpg

It came up with with the driver for XP and I selected it. I continued installing only to come to the same problem, "Setup did not find any hard disk drives on your computer."

I have contacted Asus for support, only to be given a ticket in which they will call me back. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Its a problem that XP and Sata has. Unfortunately I am not up to speed on the situation seeing i dont have and SATA deviced.

My advice would be too keep nagging asus about it. Look at their faqs on their site.

Also check the manual for special instructions.
