Hi:

 

You have to slipstream the sata drivers.

 

Please read this guide at the link below---Intel section.  Then read the downloadable PDF document for how to slipstream all of the drivers.

Paul, after working with this situation and still unable to get the computer up and runing again; I am pretty well convinced that there is a problem with the USB connections. Thanks fo your information, it was very helpful, but to no avail.
