The error is almost always a bad installer but since you've tried that and wiping the HD, you can go ahead and see if the providing the storage controller drivers causes the drive to register at the Drive Selection screen. THese drivers are normally part of the chipset, or will be listed under SATA/IDE controller on the driver Support Downloads webpage.

This would be the first time I can remember it actually was a driver needed, however.
