    Problem during Windows 8.1 Installation. No HDD found.

    Hello guys,
    I've just assembled my PC and everything works perfectly. I've plugged my Win8.1 burned USB Stick and started the installation process. When I had to choose a partition where to install the OS, the system cannot find my HDD and says that there are no drivers. I have a ASUS B85 Plus MotherBoard and I did NOT install its drivers, is that the problem? I cannot use CDs as I didn't install a CD-Reader. Thanks in advance.
    Kind Regards
