Hello people...my first post and i'm sure its not gona be the last.
I've spent the last two days looking for and reading the entire www for a solution to this problem, (not very well i might add, im sure the problem would've been solved then:-| ).
I've just bought a new 250gb seagate 7200.10 SATA drive as my previous 160gb seagate 7200.7 SATA one paced up for unknown reason as of yet, one prob at a time.
So know that ive bought this 1 i'm having problems installin it.
I have a GA-K8VT800, Athlon 64 3200+ and another seagate 7200.7 which im using know. Uses an IDE cable if that helps
Know to install it i went to the seagate website and downlaoded their "Disk Wizard" utility the latest one i think. and put them onto two floppy drives as stated, then used them.
Now the disk wizard prog which boots up in dos mode recognises the hard drive.
I then take the disk out, make sure only the new drive is connected and restart the computer with the xp cd in the cd drive so that i can install xp on the newdrive.
After installing a few things it then syas the normal setup question of
"Do you want to install fresh"
"Do you want repair windows"
cant remeber the 3rd one?
Anyway after selecting the 1st option as it is an oem hard drive and blank i think...as it came with no disks, manual or pretty box.
It then says it cannot detect a hard drive make sure it is connected properly blah blah blah.
Im fed up can ne 1 please help, plz:sad:
