hello:


without your sata controller drivers the hard drive cant be accessed ?


you have two options:

get your sata controllers drivers onto a floppy disk; then at the beginning of the entering the Win XP set-up you will see a screen that says "Press F6 to load third party SCSI Raid drivers" thats the prompt when you press the F6 and let it find your drivers on the floppy

or you can do this: (easier actually)

enter the bios; change your sata settings in the bios to IDE MODE; it will then treat your sata drive like its a IDE drive; it will load the OS and then once you are in windows you can load your motherboard chipset drivers, found on the motherboard CD; once that is done you can re-boot and change your mode to SATA mode and it will then run in SATA mode.

post back with any questions; verify that your CD-rom or DVD rom drive is NOT in the blue IDE connector
