    Yes or it can be downloaded from Gigabyte, however, after pressing the 'S' button during install Xp seeks the driver from the floppy drive. The driver is too large to be copied onto a floppy!

I formatted my hardrive and when i want to install Windows Xp it starts fine but then tells me that my hardrive is not installed,how can i fix this? "Setup did not find any Hard Disks Installed in...


Windows XP needs the SATA textmode drivers for it to recognise the SATA hard drive. This can be downloaded from this link:
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2391
You will need the SATA AHCI driver

You must then burn the drivers to a CD or copy to a USB stick. When installing windows XP, you will be prompted "press F6" to load additional drivers, at this point the install will ask you to specify where these drivers can be found, if you direct it to the USB or CD Rom (USB is better to avoid disc swapping), it should find the drivers needed and then recognise your hard drive.

The above is a bit academic though, because this does not appear to support Windows XP according to the downloads options on the link

How do I get a Win 98 SE computer to talk to a USB II external disc running from a Thermaltake deck dock with a SATA disc in the dock?


to be honest you have more of a chance of hell freezing over, win 98 se although being the better out of the lot, you will never get the drivers for it, usb2 will never work with that os and it will never recognise the sata disk, you could try using win xp drivers for it, but i very much doubt you will get any response, your best bet would be to upgrade to xp...sorry its negative, but Microsoft stopped updates for 98 years ago...

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.

Hard disk Recognition problem


U are actually facing the same problem as "jackwilkinso". As my previous post: Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.

Installation of windows XP


preachw996 has it... you must enable the SATA drive you want to install XP onto as your 1st IDE DRIVE/DEVICE (ie. you are telling BIOS to dummy a SATA drive in to the 1st IDE position).

Only then will you be able to recognise the drive as a boot device.

This is done in BIOS.

Gigabyte K8vm800M Motherboard Does Not Recognise Seagate SATA HDD


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE PAST. I REPLACE THE IDE HDD WITH SATA AND AFTER I BOOT IT SAYS NO HARDDISK. IT IS BECAUSE WINDOWS XP HAS NO BUILT IN SATA DRIVER.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS CHANGE YOUR HARDDISK TO IDE OR INTEGRATE A SATA DRIVER INTO YOUR XP (USE NLITE) OR USE THE FLOPPY DRIVE TO RUN SATA DRIVER ITS INCLUDED IN THE MOBO WHEN BUYING.

SATA Drivers for Hitachi HDD


Is there a BIOS setting to temporarily put the SATA controller into legacy mode? XP would then think it's an IDE drive. Then, after installing XP, install the drivers from the motherboard CD, then go back into the BIOS and turn off legacy mode.
