Go to the setup menu by pressing F2 , there u need to select the ATA Mode for hard disk instead of something like AHCI mode now u can boot 4m ur vista disk

No matter what settings in the BIOS you still should be able to detect the HDD unless you are trying to install XP.

Try this:

Press F2, (BIOS)

1) Select 'onboard devices' then 'flash cache module' Select "disable"

2) Select 'configure for SATA operation' then "configure for ATA" (disable ACHI)

Now when you boot from CD/ DVD (F12) no matter what operataing system you are trying to install your system will detect your HDD.
