INSTALLING WINDOWS XP ON A SATA HARD DRIVE


SATA HARD DRIVE ? XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.
The FIX.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.
If enabling the SATA in the BIOS does not allow the computer to boot up with SATA hard drive then change the BIOS back to what it was previously.

How 2 install a triple format sata internal drive in a gateway desk top


check for a open sata port on your computer. if there is one connect the hard drive with a SATA cable to the sata port on the motherboard.
connect the sata power to the hard drive or a molex to the hard drive if you do not have one. do not connect sata and molex to the hard drive together. if you don't have a molex connect you will need a molex to sata power adapter.
after connecting the hard drive to your pc. turn it on. in windows xp it will auto detect the hard drive and may prompt you to format the hard drive.

How do i find my hp compact ,the model # to look for the manuel for my comp, i have a hard drive i guess it's a new type and i want to add another hard drive but it's the old conection, what i can do ,,


I assume you new hard drive is a SATA hard drive and your HP only has an IDE hard drive.
To install a SATA hard drive in the HP, you will need to install a SATA controller card in your HP so the SATA hard drive can work in the HP computer. You will also need a power adapter lead for the SATA hard that converts the 4 pin power connector to a SATA power connector.

I want to make my WD1600AAJS hard drive a master hard drive, but the port is diffrent than my other hard drives. what do i do?


A SATA drive cannot be set to master or slave like a PATA drive can. SATA only allows one device per port. If the problem is that you don't have any SATA ports in your computer, you can get a SATA host adapter card for your system, update your motherboard to a motherboard with SATA ports, or get a PATA hard drive.

How do i install a wdeads hard drive? where is the power supply (4pin Molex)?


I'LL TELL YOU UPFRONT i HAVE ONLY INSTALLED SATA ON A NEW SYSTEM SO MY ANSWER MAY NOT BE CORRECT IN ALL SITUATIONS
Question is vague. Are you replacing a drive or building a new system? SATA drives have a dedicated plug on the Mother Board. Of course you already know you can't replace an IDE with a SATA without an adapter (Ebay has them for about $8) or the Bios is incompatible. The power is on the Motherboard and does not have a connector from the power supply like an IDE has.

Can i replace the hard drive parellel type of inspiron 2200 into SATA type hard drive?


Hi,

Ofcourse you can replace the hard drive as Inspiron 2200 are usually supplied with SATA hard drives. But call Dell support team as they will only replace the hard drive if your computer has hardware warranty or else they will ask to purchase it.

Difference between HDD and SATA


Buying a new SATA hard drive is confusing if you don't understand the differences between the various drive types. Which hard drive should you buy?

SATA Hard Drives (Serial ATA) are the most popular drives being sold today. Alongside them in the store however you will also find boxes labeled Parallel ATA or SCSI. So what are the differences between these hard drives and which one should you purchase? Your decision is dictated by what your computer can accept. Check with your computer's manufacturer to see which drive style you can use. Most newer computers purchased within the last two years accept SATA connections. If your computer cannot accept one of the newer SATA hard drives you can purchase SATA adaptor cards that plug into an empty expansion slot on your computer's motherboard. You can purchase SCSI adaptors as well, so follow these tips to guide your decision.

SATA vs PATA: Serial ATA vs. Parallel ATA Drives SATA hard drives have many benefits over their older cousin, the Parallel ATA drive. Chief among these differences are:
  • SATA hard drives are faster and perform much better than traditional ATA drives and are better for high bandwidth applications such as video editing and multiplayer gaming.
  • SATA drives use a smaller, cheaper cable to connect to the computer's motherboard. These cables can also be up to three feet in length compared to eighteen inches with Parallel ATA cables.
  • SATA hard drives can be hot swappable, meaning that they can be disconnected and reconnected without powering down the computer. There are limits to this of course. You should never disconnect your boot drive while the computer is operating.
  • SATA cables are easier to plug in without damaging the delicate connecting pins on the drive.
  • SATA hard drives are significantly faster than external USB hard drives.
SCSI Hard Drives SCSI hard drives are the elders of the storage world. SCSI is one of the oldest specifications but it is also the fastest and thus has been widely used in network servers and other high speed, high bandwidth applications. Unfortunately this high speed storage has also meant much higher costs. SCSI drives were once standard in all Macintosh computers but have since been replaced by the cheaper SATA based hard drives.
  • SCSI drives are also hot swappable, similar to the SATA drives.
  • Some varieties of SCSI can be used with SATA
  • SCSI drives are often set up in a mirroring arrangment to allow for instant, continuous backups of the hard drives.
  • SCSI drives are still the most expensive drives on the consumer market.
Your basic rule of thumb should be to purchase a drive that is designed to work with your computer's motherboard. Try to avoid using SCSI adaptors or SATA adaptors unless absolutely necessary as the whole point of using a specific kind of hard drive is to get the most speed and storage for the money.

Thanks alot,
