I am just a computer user (don't know much about what's inside it).
My Satellite Pro 6100 (notebook) came with Windows XP and IDE 30GB hard drive. Recently, the hard drive packed up. After a brief consultation (now I know I should have consulted more) I bought a Toshiba MK8026GAX (80 GB, 16MB buffer hard drive) with the understanding that I just have to pullout the defective IDE HD and plug in the new SATA HD.
Physically the new SATA mated well but I am unable to boot the Computer though I have tried advices posted in many sites. I have (I believe successfully) downloaded SATA Raid drivers/controllers (7 files including KR10l.sys)and tried the "F6 procedure". As some one else encountered an error message popsup which reads "D:\........\ole not supported at line 1XXX".
Now when I try the same procedue it says "Windows already has driver that you can use for "Toshiba Raid Driver for Windows XP" but gos back to options of "S" or "F3".
I suspect the Mother Board of my notebook does not recognize the new SATA HD.
Please advise where can I find SATA Raid controller for the mother Board (I don't know how to identify it) if I am right as above or advise me what to do. I read some lond description about "sliptream" but could not understand it.
