Installer doesn't detect internal HDD

Recommended Posts

Using iAtkos S3 V2, the USB installer doesn't detect my internal HDD, including Disk Utility.




My HDD is a Seagate ST3500418AS, 500 GB, SATA.


I've searched all around, and pretty much every forum post says to set SATA to "AHCI", which seems to fix it - but there is no setting for this in my BIOS :(

Any ideas?





Full specs:


CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200


GPU: GTX 550Ti


(I'm literally running a base HP Pavilion a6670a with an upgraded graphics card)
