loading driver pre-installation

It would really help a LOT. I've already looked in all the usual places for
I've built a new system from scratch. It's done, and now as the Vista Basic
64 goes through the normal installation process, I get a message saying no
hard drives are recognized, even though they show up fine in BIOS. I have
both a brand new Seagate & WD sata drives.

Is there a way to run the .exe to install the driver before I install
Or is there a way to extract a hard disk driver from the windows
Thank you for any help you can share. It would certainly make the world a
