Install disk, Custom, Partition/Format, create partition from available space.
If not, make sure all is plugged in correctly, if SATA, make sure you try port marked 'SATA 0' first, if PATA (IDE), make sure you are setting jumper to 'Master'. If these check out OK, download hard drive manufacturer's disk utility and test disk.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
