No drivers are needed - it should have been seen right away. Check the BIOS to see the drive is seen in the drives tables, and if there, XP needs to have the drive setup using FDISK. The drive will not show under windows until a drive table is on it.

A8VE-SE won't recognize SATA HDD


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

The hard drive wont intiialize I think it might be the mother board. how can I tell. it is a dell dimension 8300 computer


If you see the Dell BIOS flash screen, then the motherboard is likely working. Try the drive in another computer to test its integrity.
