Unhappy V12 Installation not finding second Sata drive

Trying to install version 12 from a burned dvd iso. When using cfdisk it finds my first hard drive just fine but does not detect my 320gig seagate. My sata drives are detected in cmos in the following order

1: Sata hard drive
2: Sata Dvdrw
3: Sata hard drive
4: none

Ive tried the various fdisk/dev/hdc, sdc etc but no success. The only thing I havent tried would be to rip open the case and change the order of devices to see if it detects the drive that way. I did search through the threads to try to find an answer that I havent tried to do to fix the problem but nothing jumped out as the solution to the problem that I havent tried already. Also any and all help is appreciated just please try to keep it simple, I am still very new.

"fdisk -l" will tell you what the disks are called.
