Need help Finding Sata Drivers

I changed the setting in bios from Raid to JBOD and now since I have a Sata Hard drive I want to install the Sata drivers. I have a Toshiba Portege M400-S5032 and I am attempting to install Windows 7 Pro 32 bit and like the usual problem when installing windows It cannot detect my HDD. Does anyone know where I can find the drivers, I've tried Toshiba website they only have Raid, I've looked everywhere with no luck.

Maybe a picture or two of your BIOS screens? It sounds. Like ur trying to configure storage between multiple disks. Do you have two hard drives in the computer? Look for some kind of settings for hard drive try and set them to auto. Especially SATA masters and secondaries

Thank you all but I've simply decided to just install Raid drivers instead, much less hassle and little noticeable difference.

Thanks Again, Daniel
