I am new to this forum. I am trying to Install Maxtor Diamond Max 10 100 GB SATA 150 HDD on my old AMD 756 motherboard using VIA Vt6421 SATA PCI adapter.
I installed PCI driver and my operating system (2000) recognizes it as Raid card.
The problem I am having is that when I try to install XP on this new hard drive the operating system doesnt recognize the hard drive on my computer.
Nor does it respond to me pressing F6 when I boot the system. My friend was able to install the XP on my hard drive on HIS computer. However my computer doesnt boot from this harddrive. WHen I connect my old hard drive (2000 on it), new hard drive shows up as a drive letter and when I try to access it, sometimes it takes very long time and sometimes it hangs up.
