Are you sure about the board model number? How about DG41TX?
And, what options do you see for ATA/IDE mode?
And, here is the latest bios if you are a DG41TX (bios 0054):

It is native, but I have just noticed that version of bios is actually 0037, so I'll update it now and maybe it will help. Just have to find version 0048 first.
There is a gentleman here that can address that better than I. He will be by several hours from now (time difference).
So, take a break and wait a bit.
What Linux OS version are you installing? You do need to install Windows first if you want to dual boot with Linux.
I could not find a G41 motherboard but here is a H55. Does your BIOS screen look similar to this?
Good morning MrMitch!
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.04, and I already have Win8.1.
When I start Ubuntu installation, it doesn't see the HDD. As I understand that is because file system that is used by Win is NTFS, and linux uses ext4. Which is why I need AHCI.
My BIOS looks similar, but "Configure Storage Controller as" option is missing.
Thank you for your help!
So what you need to do now is boot into Windows 8.1 and shrink your NTFS partition down so you have some free space. Then create a FAT32 partition out of the free space and that should then be seen by the Ubuntu installer. If Windows 8.1 sees the HDD correctly then you are in AHCI or IDE mode which are both supported by Ubuntu.
Received answer from Intel. My board doesn't support AHCI.
I tried to format partition as fat32 and ext3, nothing.
Ubuntu doesn't see HDD at all.
