Storage controller is likely set to RAID mode. You might be able to change it in the BIOS but if not you have to get the Intel Rapid Storage RAID driver and put it in a memory stick and point the installer to it when it says it can't see the hard drive.  This is the "F6" method.

Select the f6flpy-x64 download and unzip it onto a thumb drive. You also want to be sure in the BIOS that you have legacy boot on and secure boot off. 

 

Post back if you need more help.
