Question about Computers & Internet
I have just purchased a GeForce6100SM-M Mobo to build my own spec computer. On loading Win XP Pro from the CD it does not recognise the new SATA HDD, I believe that this is because winXP does not have the drivers for the SATA Drive. I am told to copy the SATA Drivers from the motherboard CD to a floppy and then load them from there. My problem is that I do not know where to look for them on the Mobo CD. I can find all the various files on the CD but I do not know what the ones I want are called. Can you help please. DaffyD.
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.
