ga-8knxp sata install windows 7

Gigabyte Ga-8knxp motherboard

Specs: Windows 7 home oem
I want to start from scratch with a Gigabyte GA-8KNXP, 3.0 Ghz processor and install a single W3200 SATA drive with Windows 7.
I will be installing a solid Nvidia 7800GS gard to go with it and 2gb of memory.
I'm stuck on the process of the setup of the HARD drive. The manual is a bit confusing on the hookup and drivers. Which can / should I use for the easiest install, the SATA0_SB which I believe is the Intel chipset or the SATA0_II, the Si chipset?
I have the same setup but using IDE drives on an existing system. It has been rock solid stable and reliable for 5 years now. Any help appreciated.

Ignore?
Why ignore?
I've been reading quite a few threads here regarding this specific motherboard.
What is so offensive about seeking help for it that deserves an ignore?

I posted a reply and it was not correct. The word ignore has nothing to do with your problem. Sorry for any confusion. Once a reply has been posted the originator can edit it but not remove it completely.

Your board may have a brand of SATA controllers that I never heard of so it would be inappropriate for me to attempt to help.

Thanks for the explanation.
The GA-8KNXP has both Intel and Sil chipsets for SATA drives.
My concern was which to use to attempt the install of windows 7.

I found some threads on the net that indicate there may be a different controller than either of those.

If those two are the choices then I would say the Silicon Image is a RAID controller and unless you plan on using RAID then use the Intel controllers.
