Question about Computers & Internet
I was unable to get a SATA drive to be recognized by my SR1200NX with an A7V8X-LA motherboard.
A couple rounds with tech support, initially saying it would work with no effort or driver or BIOS update needed due to the chipset support, but no drive detected.
I tried the BIOS update (from 3.11 to 3.15), no change in SATA drive detection.
Then Compaq support said I needed to jumper the SATA drive it for 1.5 rather than 3.0.
This made the difference. Came up in the BIOS and I could access the drive (Seagate Barracuda 7200.12).

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...
