Hitachi HDT72101 Drivers

Hey everyone.
I'm trying to install Windows 7 Pro but it can't see my 2 Hard Drives.
Hitachi HDT72101 (SATA)

I looked online and can't find any drivers for these. But Windows XP sees them just fine.
Any help is appreciated.

Welcome kwrite09

win7 finds 98% of needed drivers (especially HD's) if you boot the install from the DVD & choose to be connected to the internet during the install. How do you have the Bios setup configured? AHCI, SATA, or IDE for your HD's ? Is this a retail, Upgrade, or OEM install win7 ?

Odd. I retried again. I think you are right about being online. Windows 7 found my drives this time and I'm installing now. Thanks DocBrown.
Much appreciated.

More problems. I installed to the hard my blank hard disk and now I can't view my second hard disk with my files on it. It's not showing up in explorer, but disk management says it's there and fine.

I figured it out. Turns out windows didn't assign a drive letter to it. So I clicked Change Drive Letters and Path under Disk management and it worked. Thanks again DocBrown and thanks for welcoming me earlier.

Hitachi 4TB deckstar only showing up as 1.7 TB?
Hey there. I have a Dell XPS 8300. I just threw a Hitachi Deckstar 4TB drive in. It shows as 4TB in the BIOS. But in the disk management tool, it's only showing up as 1.7! I have 24X3TB (yes, 72TB) of drives attached via USB3, and they're showing just fine, so it's not the 2TB limit. Any...
