Ok I am fairly new at all this so bare with me. I recently just got a new DiamondMax 10 SATA hard drive, my old hard drive is IDE. I first attempted to pull out the old and stick in the new hard drive with my win xp cd to boot from. At the start of the xp installation it tells me there is no space to install too (apparently the computer doesnt know the HD is connected). So then I plug back in the old HD ( the IDE one ) and see if I can just use the new as extra storage. But even then my computer doesnt recognize the new hard drive. My motherboard is a ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe and has 2 SATA ports. After reading over a handful of different sites and help guides I checked in BIOS to see if there was anything regarding SATA that I need to enable. But I didnt see anything, although keep in mind I dont know exactly what I am looking for.
So what I am wondering is what do I need to do to get this computer to recognize the new SATA HD, is there somewhere I need to install drivers for my motherboards SATA connections to work or something in BIOS?
