Question about Asrock P4V88 (P4V88 RAID) Motherboard
I have a P4V88 MB and I am trying to switch my primary drive from an IDE (Maxtor 120 GB) to a single SATA (WDC Green 500 GB). I have jumped the drive so it runs 150 instead of 300; and Windows (XP Pro SP3) detects it and lists it in the device mangler as an HDD but calls it a SCSI disk device. My MB does not detect the drive, it is only recognized in Windows. It does not recognize the drive even when the IDE HDD is unplugged. The MB did not come with the support CD. I cannot find any SATA controllers in the BIOS. I have RAID disabled, since I am trying to set up a single drive. I have been to the ASRock site and have tried to update the BIOS without success. I have tested both SATA ports on the board and they work fine. At this point, I have no idea where to go or what to try! Please help!
Thanks in advance!
If you will be loading xp on the new drive,You will just need to press F6 during the setup when ask if you want to install 3rd party driver,and follow the instruction and put the SATA driver disk in when ask.(Even during xp setup It will say SCSI device until all the drivers for it are loaded)

You can slipstream the drivers from the floppy into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite.
You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.
You can download nLite at the following link:
After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.
The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD:
I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.
