Go into the BIOS and under the storage options menu, change the SATA emulation mode from ACHI to IDE.
Save the setting there, and again when you exit the BIOS.
Then the OS should install.
You will want to load the SATA ACHI driver after you install the OS and change the BIOS setting back to ACHI for best drive performance.
You can post back once you install the OS, and I will give you the instructions for doing that.
