Good morning! please check if it has a drive letter. Go into Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management and choose Disk Management from the left pane. Right-click the drive, pick "Change Drive Letter" and start fiddling. regards

I installed a sata dvd drive in my dc5100 sff the boot order recognises it as an ide drive


i dont think it matter if your system detects it as sata or ide, both interface will work in installing OS, the important thing is you changed your boot order. originally it was supposed to boot in 1st drive whichever it is hard drive or dvd drive. go to bios then follow the instruction in how to move the order of boot sequence, mine is SHIFT key then PLUS.

Compaq Mini 700EL hdd not recognised


If you are installing 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.

Am trying to reistall Win XP. Have run Fdisk and reformatted HDD. PC will not recognise install CD, keeps coming up with errors, does not find CD or HDD. Hav also tried running setup from floppy, again...


IF the hard drive is a SATA hard drive, you will first of all need to download the SATA drivers for te motherboard and copy them to a Floppy drive on another computer if yours will not work, this may also affect why it is not "seeing" the Cd drive if this is a SATA one too

Try installing Windows and when the message " press F6 if you want to ...." appears, have the floppy inserted in teh floppy drive so it can find thr SATA drivers, it will then recognise the Hard drive and install

If you have further problems please repost

SATA hard drive not recongised.


hi, sorry but i have to ask the question , why did you take the drive out of a external drive then buy a kit so as you can use it as an external drive , if its because the Seagate casing is damaged then its highly likely the drive is damaged too .

Its settings in the bios. Press DEL or F2 at startup and look for something like drive configuration in there and set SATA to enable. Most boards have this turned off by default. Cheers from Scott

Maxtor one touch iii unable to read drive; the external hard drive previously worked and now it doesn't read the drive


please remove the raw drive from the casing
it may be a sata drive of maxtor please power it up directly to your pc with a sata power and sata cable
the drive will get recognised .
if it gets recognised it means the interphase between the disk and the ext casing has been damaged

if you fail , the disk has lost its firm ware or rom chip rom bin file.
both can be flashed and recover the drive
BEcaerful you can break the plastic casing while removing the raw drive as it had been machine dyed and fixed and you may not find any screw s outside

Cant load xp onto sata HDD


To use XP with a SATA drive you'd need to use the HDD disc software first as XP didn't come with preloaded SATA drivers. This is what is preventing you from installing XP on the drive. Once the driver is loaded you should have no problem. If your new hdd didn't come with a disc then you can download it from the hdd manufacturers website under the support link. Hope this helps.

Windows 2000 advanced Server does not support Seagate 250 GB Hard Drive.


I am inclined to think that this would be a problem with the jumper settings limiting the size of the drive.
I can't offer anything more than that, sorry. Hope it will help a bit.

SATA Disk Problem


Is it a SATA II drive?

If so, you need to jumper the drive to "downgrade" to SATA I before the Via controller will recognise it.
WD5000AAKS needs to jump 5+6. I don't know about other drives, but I'm sure you can find it.

I hope I've made your day, just as this info did to me when I found it!
