windows 7 64bit
Hard drive problem with my first build. HELP!

hi guys. basically this is my first build using these:

coolmaster RC-430-KWNI ELITE
intel i5 3.33ghz
Gigabyte XKT-1155 Z68AP-D3
Corsair 4gb memory
ASUS Radeon HD6670 1Gb
LG SATA DVD-RW optical drive
Western digital cavair 640GB WD6400AAKS (using SATA)
and a power supply
using windows 7 64bit

And the problem is im past building the thing and now im upto installing the OS, im booting from the disk and trying to install the OS on the hardrive but it wont work. The os wont detect the hardrive, although i can find it in BIOS. I have tried altering the settings relevant to the hardrive but this isnt getting me anywere. any suggestions??

If not the manual says to use the raid function, i can turn it on but i cant access the actual raid settings, anybody know how to?

Thanks guys
ps keep it simple, its my first build so im a bit of a noob
