I just bought a new pc. Actually, I bought the parts and am building it myself. This is my first load of Windows 8. I got everything hooked up, then turned on the pc and inserted the win8 install disk. Everything starts up fine until it asks me to select a location to install windows... There's no HDD listed. I'm using a windows 8 Western Digital Caviar Green 500 GB Sata HDD. I've tried loading the drivers multiple ways and it just refuses to work. I inserted the utility disc for my motherboard and tried to take the sata drivers from that... no luck. I also can't find out where to download the drivers for this particular Hard drive. I'm completely stuck at this point... Please help me!

Thanks for suggestions guys. I marked this as solved. I turned off the pc during setup when it couldn't find my drive to try to research the issue, which is when I posted this thread. I turned it back on to try again and suddenly my hdd was just there. I don't know what happened that first time around, but it works now, so I'm happy . Thanks again for your time.
