If he can't see any of his drive's maybe you have a better solution, i may have worded it without enough detail but i think i've done enough clean installs with and without SATA controller drivers to know what i was talking about.

When I do attempt to install Upgrade wont work at all, the second option brings me to a page asking me to select drivers and stuff, from there you can see your computer

C: when clicked asks me to insert a disk
E and F are my SD card and USB
X: I have no idea, but this same Drive appears when I go into the CMD, and also it contains windows files.

I agree. He said the Cd/DVD had power and the hard drive would spin up so I vote for MOBO.
