    It should be OK. Are you using an on board SATA controller? Sometimes the BIOS default setting deactivates the SATA controller and the drive won't be detected.

    Have you tried installing with the noprobe option? I've sometimes found that autodetect at boot time doesn't work.

    Here's a thread in the forum that talks about SATA problems with older versions of Fedora. It may apply to CentOS as well.

    Are you sure the drive is good? Does the latest Fedora or Windows detect it?
