Probably your SATA controller isn't supported by the kernel in the
official etch installer.

Recently, I was in the same situation and used an installer with a newer
kernel from <http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/>. That one worked just fine.
Another option might be to switch the controller to AHCI mode in the
BIOS, if it has such an option. I think has been supported earlier than
some specific chipsets.
