If you boot into 'Live CD' rather than the installer, can you still see
the drives in /dev ?
If so, you should be able to go ahead and install the system manually --
it takes a little knowledge of some of the low level management
commands, but it isn't particularly difficult. If you wanted to use ZFS
for instance, you'ld have to do a manual install anyhow, and there are
many recipes around the web.
If the drives appear in the dmesg output and then disappear that's a
whole different kettle of fish.
