    sorry i accedently rated myself again

  • gregingalls Sep 17, 2008

    I am havingn the same problem. I was able to boot off the drive to install XP Pro (Worked fine with XP Home). I checked for the Upper and lower Filters in the registry and there were no entries to delete (Confirmed I was in the right location). There are other registry keys with the Drive's model # listed so I know Windows knows it's there. I need help getting this drive visible!! 


    Thanks!!

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 ..

SAMSUNG CD-ROM SH 152>> Detection Error


Dear Sheila

After connecting it to the motherboard, switch on the pc, then go to properties of "my computer" then choose "Hardware" then choose device manager and over here u will come to know weather ur CD rom has been detected or not, if it has a question mark then it means u have to install drivers for it, but if ur using Win XP, i am sure it shd detect automatically and need not ask for drivers. Hoping a good rating from u....!!!

Thankyou
