Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. You need to put the SATA drivers on a floppy disk. During windows install, you will be prompted to install 3rd party drivers by pressing F6. At that point, press f6 and insert the floppy into drive a and load the drivers.

Here is a good link for information on SATA

Your motherboard should have came with the disks for your board, if not you get the right ones from the manufacturers website.
