Default Help installing Windows on HP Pavilion DV7

Hi, I'm looking to dual boot Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion DV7-3085DX with an Intel i7. I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.10 but I would like to dual boot so I can use some windows specific apps. The problem I'm having is when I go to install Windows on a new 150GB partition it doesn't show my HDD. The Windows installation says I can search for drivers on an external disk and I've done tons of searching and many people have found the answer with the drivers for their HDD but I can't find the drivers for my system. Can someone point me in the right direction to getting Windows to recognize my HDD?

O god, I had the exact same problem, seems like I tried another disk and that fixed it, so I'm gussing the disk you're using is a old or doesn't have your drivers.

I really remember clearly tho the problem I had, but I am so sure a disk changed fixed it.
