Problems Installing MDK 10.1 on S-ATA Drive

Hello guys,

My problems seem to start very early. I cant even get past the installation progress. It stops after the License agreement, somehow he cant use my IDE Drive. Here is what it says:

Found "VIA Technologies Inc|VT8237 SATA150 Controller", "perpert-pc", "imm", "ppa" interfaces

Do you have another on?

Then he gaves me the opportunity for these answers:

Hardware Info

When i press No or choose any other options that Yes is bringing me, he says:

An error occured - no valid devices werde found on which to create new filesystems. Please check your Hardware for the cause of this problem.

I am trying to install from a burned MDK 10.1 DVD, and my S-ATA Drive has 200 GB and is from Seagate.

I used 10.0 before, on the same PC and it worked ... I never had this problem, it just came with 10.1

Thanks Guys!!!
