If you are trying to install Windows XP 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.

I want to install xp sp2 on Sata HDD The motherboard is P5RD1-VM but there is error set up did not find any hard drive plz tell me settings of bios to sata compataibale


It's likely a problem with your connection cable from the HDD to the motherboard. The bios shouldn't have to be set up for the HDD to be recognized through a sata port.

Sir, i have an msi n1996 (vt8237r & km400 8237) mother board. My sata 160 gb hdd is not getting recognized in bios. Pl. help. (it is reported somewhare on the net that i have to enter into the...


I enabled SATA support on my BioStar M7VIZ-SATA MOBO (it is km400 and 8237r, like yours) by first installing the VIA SATA RAID drivers. At this point, Windows recognized the device controller but not the 120GB drive. The problem was that the system doesn't support "newer" SATA drives, so I installed a jumper on the disk drive to set it to "150" mode... SATA version 1 compatibility. After that, Windows immediately recognized the drive and mounted the filesystem.

I think it was a Western Digital drive. Other manufacturers have a different name for the same jumper. Also, I read that one type (Samsung?) can only be set to the old SATA standard by getting the drive running in a SATA 2 environment, then using a utility program to adjust the drive's microcode setting.

Good Luck to you.

My Sony VAIO VGC-RA920G won't recognize my replacement HDD.


You first should check to see if the SATA cable is plugged in to the HDD all the way. If not, there will not be any data flow. If it is, check to see if the power cable is plugged in. If not, it's not using power or getting data flow.

HDD not recognized whe installing fresh Windows XP!


Hi...

If your HDD will not recognized during installation you need to check if your HDD is detected. Try to look at your BIOS if it is detected. IF the HDD will not detected you need to replace the cable, try to use the other slot of your SATA or IDE ports.
