Driver win xp


If your indicating windows cannot find your hard drive during set up, you will need to know the name of the SATA RAID device on your mobo, download the drivers on to a floppy and install them during windows setup at the "press F6 for 3rd party raid drivers" prompt.

Bios reconizes new hd drive but xp pro does not


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
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.

Samsung HM251JI 250 GB SATA Hard Drive firmware download


I suggest reading the manual for this disk, which can be downloaded here
http://www.nodevice.com/download/user_manual/samsung+hm251ji.html
At the beginning, Q5 says:

"I am looking for a Software & Firmware (mainly about drivers) but I

found nothing.

Where I can find I want ?

We don't release any firmwares.

Because the product has been already optimized with its own

configurations.

IDE (PATA & SATA) drive does not need any drivers. You just have

to make a partition and format your drive for using.

Please make sure whether you had partitioned and formatted.

First of all, you must partition and format for recognizing the new

drive in the Windows Explorer.

Within Win98 series, please use the Fdisk.

Within Win2000 & Win-XP, please use the Disk Management.

When installing Win2000 or Win-XP, the installation process
includes the partitioning step itself." etc.

My wd 1600bev not accessible in my os win xp, the device was detected but not appear in the win explorer. do you have any solution? thank you


one bad/faulty lead can lead to problems of this nature
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Laptop cannot find new sata disk


Can you provide me the details of the laptop. Also; are to trying to install Windows XP OS on your notebook.

If you are trying to install Windows XP on your notebook; then we need to disable the SATA on the notebook by using the external USB based floppy drive or using the nlite application burning the XP OS disc with a set of SATA drivers to install and recognize the hard drive.

I was formatting my hp(dv2000tu)recovary partion but when i want to install xp by any cd my harddisk ware not detacted but vista is installed with out causing any problem


First is your hard disk a removable one/external hard drive?6ea4669.png if you receive this image, then it probably means you have a SATA hard drive, and your bios is set to Raid/SATA mode.

First, go to your bios settings, then change SATA mode into IDE. This should be under something like "On-Chip SATA".

Or, you can go to http://www.nliteos.com then download the program to install the needed drivers to the xp installation CD.

Hope this helps, and please rate ^_^

SATA Drivers for Hitachi HDD


Is there a BIOS setting to temporarily put the SATA controller into legacy mode? XP would then think it's an IDE drive. Then, after installing XP, install the drivers from the motherboard CD, then go back into the BIOS and turn off legacy mode.
