I'm trying to reformat my friends PC with Windows XP Professional.
MotherBoard: Biostar TF7050-m2
nVidia nForce 630a(mcp68)
Bios Date 8/23/07
Version 6.0 PG
Hard Drive: Serial ATA 3 GB/s
Seagate ST33Z06z0ns
Drive revision 3.aee
Drive Serial Number 5qf28yzv

When I try to boot from the operating system disk it tells me it doesn't detect any storage disks to install Windows onto, but I can boot to the operating system that is still installed on the hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.

You don't have SCSI.
There should be an option in the BIOS to change the RAID type. You want IDE/Legacy. Otherwise you'll have to source and feed Windows a driver on floppy disk by pressing F6 when prompted.
