"no drives detected" message during Win 7 installation
I'm using Win 7 Professional x64 rtm from MSDNAA.
When i try to create a clean install, everything goes smooth untill the Partition selection screen. I get a "no drives were detected" notice and the list is empty. It offers the Load drivers option but i dont really know where to get them.
I have Striker Extreme motherboard, and a wdc wd5000aaks SCSI hard drive (connected via SATA).
Im running Vista Ultimate x64 at the moment. If i use vista's install dvd to see if it finds hdd drive during installation, it does find them. Also if i try to use Windows 7 installer from within Vista, win 7 installer finds my hdd normally.
What should i do?

After trying every possible driver with "Load driver" option without success, seeing atleast 3 BSOD's (error 0x0000007b) and being in a general bad mood i finally made it into Windows 7.
What i did was the folowing:
1.) i flashed the bios to the latest version (used a rather old one before (beginning of 2007 i belive))
2.) burned the image at 1x speed (with imageburn, default settings)
Which one did it i don't really know, but here is my advice to everyone that experiences problems during setup. First and foremost burn the image at a slow speed. I burned mine at 4x (dvdrw) several times with several different programs and had no success.
