Easy option, go into the BIOS and look for the settings for the SATA or RAID controller, dissable RAID and set the SATA interface to Native IDE, Windows XP and Vista will now recognise his drive.
Second option, he will need to have a floppy disc drive connected even if only as a temporary measure, then get someone who has a working PC to load his driver disc and look for the utility to make a SATA/RAID driver disc, then when starting the Windows installation press F6 to install extra drivers, then follow the prompts.
