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.

When i try to install windows xp pro , it says press any key to boot from cd . then it says inspecting files.. then it just restarts everytime. do i need sata drivers


Hi there,
Please try going into the BIOS of your computer try to reload the defaults and check if it will happen again.
If it happens again, try going back to the BIOS and try staying there and see if the computer will restart.
If it restarts in BIOS mode that means your computer has a problem with the memory or the motherboard.
If windows xp cannot find a hard drive it will tell you that it cannot find a disk to install windows xp and will not restart by itself.
I think you have a different problem than just the sata drivers.
Hope this helps!

Cannot install xp pro on wd sata hard drive please help


This may be because the version of Windows XP install disk that you're using doesn't support SATA. You'll need either a driver disc or a newer XP install disc which has SATA support. You could try enabling legacy support in the bios to enable emulation which the operating system may understand.

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.

Hanging on detection of drive when installing Windows XP


Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.
