If the motherboard has VIA chipset (older model), that was created when there was only SATA drives, it might not work with the newer SATA 2 hard drives. WD SATA 2 drives can be jumpered on pins 5&6 to 'slow' data rate. Check Wikipedia for "Sata" also.

You need to install the drivers for it when loading windows,,
you are on the right track by pressing F6 however you need to have the FLOPPY DISK that came with your mainboard in the floppy drive..

If you dont have the diskette then ,, the drivers are located on the mainboard cd,, its in the sata / raid folder, there should be a text document in there with the insttructions on creating a floppy with the driver files you will need.

Windows will not see them because you need to download the SATA drivers for the motherboard from the Asus site.

Download and install to a floppy or USB (advise the latter)
Install windows,and you will get a "press f6 if you want to install a raid device ..."
Press F6 and hopefully, windows will find the drivers, highlight the ones it wants.. the rest should be simple

Windows won't recognize the HDD in my Dell XPS 400.


hawkdawg

In regards to installing your new harddrive if you are installed a SATA drive the issue is that not all versions of Windows has SATA drives native on the Windows install CD. So during the first part of the install you will need to press F6 to load the SATA drivers of the driver CD. If you do not have it you can download the drivers from support.dell.com

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I cannot configure a SATA RAID 1 to mirror two WD HDD 1 TB


You sure you installed the ASUS RAID drivers when you installed Windows? Ya need to get the drivers off the ASUS disk, transfer them to a floppy, hit F6 when windows tells you to (during windows install...you only have a second or 2 to see the message!)) and use the floppy to install them. Might take a few tries to get it right.

Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install


When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

Asus P4S800D-X mobo and sata hdd problem


I believe you need to load in the SiS 180 RAID controller for this MOBO during the Windows Install.

Do this by loading the driver onto a floppy and pressing F6 when told to do so by the windows install.

Cant find my SATA HDD


Yes - find the chipset for the motherboard - go on intel website for that chipset - download the utility for F6 use [sata driver or raid controller] put these files on floppy or USB key - boot motherboard and when it says press F6 to instal SCSI or other drivers press F6 - the software will ask where the files are - use the correct file and carry on running the windows installation. This time your sata hard drive will be recognised and you can complete loading windows.

Please rate my assistance - thank you.

Did you insert the sata driver disks when prompted in the first stages of installation? I think it's mentioned as scsi drivers.
