Question about Abit KT7-RAID Motherboard
I have and Abit kt7a-raid motherboard. I bought a new Seagate 320 gb hard drive. I am trying to do a fresh install of xp home on the new drive. I slipstreamed service pack 3 into my install disk, and updated the bios to the latest version available on abits website. I tried to install xp several times before each of the steps mentioned. I have gotten checksum errors and the bios defaults have been restored. Xp will start to install from the disk I can get to formating the hard drive and copying the install files to the hard drive. At the first restart, the hard drive is not found. When I press del and enter the bios settings the hard drive is shown and size is listed.
I haven't recreated the partiation on the hard drive since up updated the bios, I am going to try that now and create a relatively small partiton because I am tired of waiting for it to format a 320 gb drive.
Any help would be great thanks Bruce
MS Windows is funny thing. it want what it wants.
you have to use Windows Installation Disk to format the 2 HHD. no way around it. even you formated with the disk manager.
once you have the Windows Formated the disk, you should not have the error, and you should be able to slipstream the application.

If your hard drive is SATA and your windows disk does not have SATA drivers on it it will not find the hard drive this is your problem
Go to the above site and download "driverpack mass storage" and slipstream into your windows CD.
I have done this with one windows install disk that could not find disk then it worked perfectly
