Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
I just received a used box and trying to install windows XP. The computer came with a serial ATA card in the bottom slot connected to a 500 GB HD. I Cannot see the SATA hard drive when trying to install XP. If I connect a IDE HD too the box, it sees when I start installing XP but upon restarting during the XP installation, it continuously goes back to the CD Drive and start the installation all over again.
I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first. My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card? Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.
