I'm having a problem with a SATA HDD and would appreciate some advice.
My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-8SQ800 and is SATA capable.
I was running a couple of IDE drives with XP installed on the C:. A couple of days ago my C: developed a problem so I went and bought a WD200 SATA HDD.
I fdisk'd and formatted the new drive with NTFS and if I go into disk manager the HDD is there, assigned D:, active and healthy.
I want to do a clean install of XP onto the SATA drive but it is not being seen by the XP set up.
I have tried disconnecting the IDE drive and I have set the BIOS settings to enable SATA.
However, I just cant get the XP set up to see the SATA HDD.
Any advice would be greatly received.
Thanks in advance
