No you can't update the BIOS for that. But yes, you can load them on an USB memory stick and load it from there.
Or you can create a customized install disk as shown here

Mother board masi km4am-l H.D.D. 1 TRA WES 64MB when installing win xp hard not detected by win setup. I updated bios but not worked. advance thanks


you should not update the bios...the issue is the hard disk is on sata ...and you need a raid driver installed to detect the hdd...so ...either get into BIOS and under advanced features..look the place where the drives are detected..and select the hdd and look for a feature called AHCI ..and disable it ..and leave sata like ide..and save with f10 and restart ...after that the hdd will be seen ..
another way is to make a floppy disk with the raid driver on it (the one from the mothermoard drivers disk ) ..and when it ask you to press f6 for 3rd party software ...press it ..and insert the floppy ...it will pick up the raid driver and will go like a charm ..
if you do not have a floppy ..install a second cd drive ..and use a cd ..and after pressing f6 for 3rd party ..browse and point to the raid driver on the mobo driver cd ..

when a person goes install windows xp they encounter the problem of not being able to find any hard disk drives installed as if they weren't connected. The hard drive is detected with no problem in the BIOS and also on start up POST, able to boot up Linux Live CDs but the hard drive is just not being detected in Windows setup. Here is the exact error message.
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.This problem is quite a common one and is simply due to the fact that when Windows XP was created, the SATA chipset itself and SATA hard drives weren't available to the masses, so support for it wasn't included in the XP setup process. As most computers within the last decade or so have some form of SATA controller, if you try to install Windows onto a SATA drive, XP won't recognize it because the drivers aren't present on the installation disc, so they need to be loaded manually for the drive to be picked up.
Thankfully there are a few ways to get around this problem and enable Windows XP to be installed onto a SATA hard drive so you can enjoy the extra performance and other functions like hotplug/AHCI etc. Setting the BIOS Correctly
The first and mos obvious method is to change the SATA Mode to IDE in the system BIOS. Most BIOS's for several years have included a fallback mode to enable a SATA drive to behave like an IDE drive, and therefore makes it visible to XP during setup. The problem with this setting is it comes under several different names and can be found in different sections within the BIOS. It depends entirely on the computer or motherboard's make, model and manufacturer to know which setting you have and where it is. If you have a manual, it's certainly worth reading.
The most obvious thing to look for is a setting which can change the SATA controller to IDE or PATA mode, with options such as AHCI -> IDE or SATA/RAID -> IDE etc. Basically any option you come across to reduce the SATA/RAID mode to IDE/PATA should be the correct one. Don't confuse this option with a similar one which will disable the SATA controller completely. Here's some names we found it could be under in a few motherboard manuals we looked at:
Integrated Peripherals > SATA Devices Configuration > SATA Mode > [IDE]
Integrated Peripherals > Serial ATA Function > Base
Storage Configuration > SATA Mode Selection > Emulated PATA Mode
SATA Configuration > SATA Configuration [Enhanced] > Configure SATA as > IDE
Integrated Peripherals > South OnChip PCI Device > SATA Controller > IDE Mode
Using a Floppy Disk
If you're unable to change RAID mode to IDE or disable SATA in the BIOS, then the next option would be to download SATA/RAID drivers from your motherboard manufacturer's website, extract the drivers to a floppy disk and then insert the floppy into your computer during Windows XP installation. This method obviously gets around the problem of XP not having the drivers on the install CD by you providing them manually.
Windows XP setup won't recognize USB flash drives, so you need to have an internal floppy drive available, many USB floppy drives will also work though. As you can see in the image below, it clearly states that the SATA RAID driver is for use on floppy drives. You need to make sure any drivers you download are explicitly designed for putting onto a floppy and not a generic driver, usually the file will be around 1MB or lower which is a good sign it's likely to be the correct driver.
Insert the Windows XP CD and boot it up. You should see a message that says "Press any key to boot from CD..." Simply hit any key and it'll start to boot from CD. Pay attention to the next blue colored windows setup screen. When you see a message that says "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver..." at the bottom, immediately hit the F6 key.
After loading some files, you will come to a screen that says the following:
Setup could not determine the type of one or more mass storage devices installed in your system, or you have chosen to manually specify an adapter. Currently, Setup will load support for the following mass storage devices(s):
< none >
* To specify additional SCSI adapters, CD-ROM drives, or special disk controllers for use with Windows, including those for which you have a device support disk from a mass storage device manufacturer, press S.
* If you do not have any device support disks from a mass storage device manufacturer, or do not want to specify additional mass storage devices for use with Windows, press ENTER.Make sure the driver floppy is inserted and press S. It will present a list of drivers which it read from the disk earlier. Select the appropriate driver and continue the Windows XP installation. The setup will continue and this time it will recognize the SATA hard disk drive in your PC. This problem is quite common when trying to install Windows XP on newer computers because most if not all are using SATA hard drives. After installing Windows XP, you can easily and automatically install all required device drivers using the DriverPack Solution disc.
If you thought it wasn't possible to use a USB flash drive instead of a floppy drive to load the drivers during the F6 phase, we have a solution that could !!!

Hi, your Windows XP install CD doesn't have SATA drivers for the hard drive included, so it's not able to address your hard drive. You can't disable SATA in the BIOS to make it work since your hard drive is still SATA. You'll need to get a 3.5" floppy disk and drive if your laptop doesn't have one. They make external 3.5" USB floppy drives that will work.

1. download the SATA drivers for your laptop (iastor.sys and inf)
2. copy the drivers to your floppy disk (about 6-7 files)
3. plug the floppy drive into your laptop
4. boot to the Windows XP CD
5. as soon as the installation starts, it asks you to "Press F6 to specify RAID or controller drivers" - Press F6 now
6. When setup asks for it, point it to the floppy drive
7. Installation will continue and find your SATA hard drive

Ta-da! Rock on with your bad self.

ABit-Th7 raid Drivers


This problem is very simple.... Using RAID in booting in cd/dvd cannot be done in this kind of processing. you have to change the setting of Hard Disk and CD/DVD to IDE in BIOS . To change the setting in the BIOS you need to press the Delete After you power on the computer.. In Main menu in the bios you will find the hard disk or cd/dvd settings to IDE, SATA, and RAID. change both hard disk and cd/dvd to IDE configuration. make sure the first boot in the Boot menu is the cd/dvd, where your windows cd installer is inserted. Save the settings by pressing F10 key in the keyboard.. I have the same problem as of you because i try it to change SATA, RAID but cannot boot to cd and cannot detect the hard disk when installing OS, but in IDE settings its okay.. and it works perfect.. after you installed the windows properly, you can change the Hard Disk or cd/dvd configuration to SATA or RAID. TY

HOPE I CAN HELP

Hard disk drive not deteted during windows installation


This problem arises due to a missing driver in windows installation. download your specific driver and copy it to a floppy drive. Then start the windows setup. As the setup loads it will ask "Press F6 to load a SATA RAID driver".Press F6 and insert the floppy into Floppy disk drive.
And continue the setup...

Installing windows without DVD


The hard disk is not recognized from USB because of SATA drivers not present on XP setup disk.

That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:

Samsung sata hard disk detection problem while windows setup


Hi, Typically, Windows XP installer does not provide full support for SATA HDs (drives) nor for all kinds of SATA Controllers (on the motherboard or add-on card). However, Windows XP installer provided a way out by prompting the user to press F6 and load the necessary drivers in the FDD. The diskette containing the drivers may either come from: manufacturer of motherboard; manufacturer of controller; or manufacturer of HD. If none was provided nor available, then perhaps you can DIY (do-it-yourself). More often than not, it is inside the MB installer/driver CD in D:\Drivers\SATA or something like that and copy to a floppy diskette. Alternately, you can download from the manufacturer's website, decompress and copy to FD. When the Windows XP installation CD puts out the message "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver", press "F6" as instructed. Thereafter, press "S" to specify additional device on the next pop up screen. Insert the driver floppy disk in and press enter to continue. If the floppy disk is made successfully, the installation program will ask for selecting driver. Please then select "Motherboard chipset (VIA, Intel etc Serial ATA RAID Controller(Windows XP)".) After the SATA driver loaded, Windows XP will now recognize the SATA HDD, proceed and continue to install Windows XP. If you do not have a FDD, one of your option is to DIY a slipstream WinXP installer CD. This is better explained in this article . Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need fur4ther information. Good luck and kind regards.
