Hello when i install windows my sata hard dont detect. my main board is asus k8ux hard is western 1.0tera


You are probably installing windows XP
This requires that you install the textmode sata raid drivers as you install windows

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K8U-X&p=1&s=20

Download the RAID driver and expand it to a floppy , CD or USB drive that the computer can recognise
(USB is better)

When you install windows, at the prompt for installing other drivers press F6 and let it find the raid drivers, if it finds them, it should then recognize your hard drive and you can install windows XP

Run a sata drive as main boot up drive. Xp on ide cant see new sata drive to format or install Windows 7?


XP installation does not have SATA drivers.
You need to have the SATA driver on a floppy disk and during the XP installation press F6 to install the SATA driver.
The other alternative is to change the BIOS configuration and set the disk controller to IDE or SATA native driver, then install XP.
After Windows installation then install the SATA driver.
Download the driver from the motherboard WEB site.

I want to install XP Pro on a sata drive


You need to post what Brand/Model of motherboard you are using, or search for yourself on the manufacturers website for the SATA drivers. Then you need to load the SATA drivers onto a floppy disk so that you may press F6 during the beginning of Windows Setup to load the SATA drivers, as Windows XP Setup does not come with SATA drivers.

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download


if you need more help post back

Asus P4S800D-X mobo and sata hdd problem


I believe you need to load in the SiS 180 RAID controller for this MOBO during the Windows Install.

Do this by loading the driver onto a floppy and pressing F6 when told to do so by the windows install.

How to install window XP without floppy disk on asus P5RD1-VM


Hi sheikhun, just ignore windows F6 to add special SATA drivers. Install windows, when finished use your Asus CD and install missing drivers from CD. Than run windows updates.
You should not have a problem, if while in your bios your SATA drive is shown in the main menu. Than check the Boot section of bios. The boot order should be.
CDROM drive 1st. SATA drive 2nd.
Disconnect any other hard drives data cable while installing windows. When you finish installing windows & installing the drivers from the CD & windows updates you can shut down the PC & reconnect the data cables you may have disconnected.

If your bios does not see your serial ATA SATA drive than your SATA onboard controller is defective. Return to Asus for replacement/repair.
