Question about Soltek SL-75FRN2-RL Motherboard
Hi, I have a problem with detecting my sata hdd on windows installation but I suppose my floppy disk controllers are corrupt since no FDD seems to be working. I've read a similar question you've had and you said a USB key could be used to install SCSI drivers, but the software asks for a floppy disk. Is there another way to fix this?
That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.
Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.
On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.
Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see: Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .
