That is probably because only later kernels than the one used during 
installation of Woody support it. Also, the Woody installation did not 
have very advanced hardware detection.

I would suggest you try the new RC3 release of the Debian Installer which 
is the one that will be released with Sarge.
You can find images and documentation from [1].

If you really want to install Woody, I have to refer you to the 
debian-user mailing list as this list does not support Woody
