Installing WIndows 2012 on Supermicro server

I was trying to clean install windows 2012 R2 on supermicro computer as Windows 2012 is eval is expiring soon and I could not find license for Windows 2012 standard for upgrade.
When I try to install Windows 2012 R2 it does not detect HDD. Server is setup without RAID with three HDD for 2 tb each in AHCI mode. WIndows 2012 std was working but I don't know, if it needs driver for WIndows 2012 R2.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The hard drive is unimportant.  You need a driver for the controller the drive is connected to. Why are you using ONLY one drive?

Go to Super Micro's site, download the drivers for the motherboard and load them.
