Hard Drives are not visible during Debian installation
My question is relatively simple (so I believe). I'm not quite sure how I can be messing this up. For the past two days I have been trying to install Debian on my 64-bit Intel processor machine and have been having a lot if trouble. I am using the amd64 insallation of Debian 6.0.6 and am having this problem.
When I get to the section in which I am to partition a hard drive for the installation if Debian only my removable media appear. I have four internal hard drives. Two of which are mirrored dynamic WD HDDs that are used in my installation if Windows8, one is an Intel SSD, and the other is a WD 500GB HDD.
Any advice? I can post more of the error messages that appear later.

If you have a intel chip set then you should not be using the amd64 ios you need the i386.iso--------------------------

The architecture amd64 is called amd64, because the company AMD was the first to implement a 64bit extensions for x86.
Intel then used AMDs specification in their CPUs as well.
amd64 ISOs are usually the right choice for intel and amd 64bit CPUs.You must always face the curtain with a bow.

Have you tried LiveCD of any other Linux distro? Do other distros detect Hard disks?

If this is a live CD and the hard disks have been automatically mounted you may need to unmount them first by right clicking on it the file manager and selecting the appropriate option.
