Hi everyone

Am trying to re-install windows XP on my SATA Maxtor 120Gig. The contoller is the famous Promise SATA378.

Right now my PC works and the promise contoller BIOS finds the Hard drive and boots but I would like to re-install windows because my PC seems to be running pretty slow lately. So I insert my windows XP CD, i change the boot setting in my BIOS to boot from CD, that is no problem, when windows starts to install I hit the F6 key and insert the SATA controller driver disk, and I select the WinXP Promise SATA378 (tm) IDE Controller from the floppy but then windows does not detect my SATA drive, all it detects right now is my Maxtor 80gig that I have hooked up to my primary IDE contoller. Can someone please help with this , I've tried different promise controller drivers, nothing seems to work for me right now.


Thanks
Luc
