Windows 7: Asus P5N-D and W7

Asus P5N-D and W7

I am trying to install Windows 7 on my pc (fresh install) I have the Asus P5N-D Mobo. When W7 gets to the screen to select the drive to install it on, it's blank. I have tried the P5N-D driver disk. Have tried Vista and XP driver's but nothing seems to work. Is there any other reason why W7 can't see my 250 gb hard drive? System specs below:

P5N-D
8 gb Ram
250 gb WD HDD
MSI 260GTX

If I left anything out just ask. Thanks in advance.

you need the sata/raid drivers for motherboard which you will find here (64bit/32bit)
unzip them onto a flash drive or a floppy disk.

Also if its a new hard drive it needs to be formated before you can use it.
