Windows 98 does not support SATA very well, the technology did not exist when the OS was created. Change to Windows XP and you will find it works well.

Can't install windows on FSB 800 motherboard its showing no hard disk installed in your computer but showing in the bios kindly help


If you are installing XP on a SATA hard drive 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.

Is this hard drive a SATA hard drive?
If it is a SATA hard drive Windows won't detect the hard drive because the Windows XP installation CD has not got a SATA driver.

If the hard drive is a IDE drive then, the hard drive may be faulty, especially if the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive.

I have a winfast 761GXK8MC motherboard. I am using a athlon 2800 CPU, and a SATA hard drive. when I install windows 98 it keeps locking up. then it says "child devices are keeping it from fully starting...


i doubt sata technology is supported by windows 98, you need to use windows 2000 at least. microsoft, unfortunately, does not support windows 98 anymore. the only other option is for you to check on your motherboard's manufacturer's website for windows 98 drivers. you could also try ide cd drives.

Disk boot failure when I installed a new SATA DVD writer


Start the system & enter you're bios & use you're manual to help guide you on this. Go to the Boot section of the bios. You can set the boot order. Normal boot order is like this:
1st boot device, floppy disk (if one is connected).
2nd boot device, cdrom drive
3rd boot device, hard drive
(Drive the has windows installed on it).
Save & exit the bios. The system will restart & windows should load. If it does not, than you picked the wrong hard drive.

Good luck!

Can not install windows xp


hubag, you need to check your bios. At boot up, press the delete key every 2 seconds & your bios will load. Make sure your SATA drive, (s) are listed example: {if your SATA drive is a Seagate the bios will show it as: ST3250823AS}. You should unplug any IDE hard drives connected to the system while installing Win XP. The Southbridge integrates a Serial ATA host controller that is SATA v1.0 compliant, supporting Ultra DMA 150 (SiS964 only). If you do not have your manual you can download it here at:
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=392&DetailName=Manual&DetailDesc=&CategoryID=1&MenuID=6&LanID=9
661FX-M(V1.0B)
Once the bios is set & see's your SATA drive so will windows.
If you can not set your bios to list your SATA drive windows will never install on your SATA drive. You can also use the above link & down load drivers, including a RAID driver.
