I cannot connect SATA HDD

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.

I hear the fan spinning but the hdd is booting

If you want another drive to boot instead of the Hard Disk Drive, you can either go to the boot menu or into your System Settings (BIOS) to change the order in which drives attempt to boot. Each BIOS is different, and could take a different key-press during start-up to get into it. The most common I've seen are F1 or ESC.

Hello, You need to right click on to my computer>Manage>choose disk management, you should format the new SATA HDD there.

If that will work for you that is good but if not, i thing you should updated the BIOS and you have to make sure that you get that update to MSI website. if you are not familiar w/ that asked some one who know how to flash BIOS. it is risky if you are not familiar doing BIOS update!!!

Hard disk not dectecting

Is your Hard disk running at all ?
Can you hear some spinning noise and vibrations when it starts running?

Check the jumper settings (Master/Slave/Single).

If you have another device connected on the same cable (HDD/CD), check jumper settings on that device too.
You may first try to disconnect other device (if connected).

It is a very old PC, try replacing the data cable of your HDD, and pay attention of the correct connection of cable to the motherboard and HDD, too !
Check BIOS settings if both IDE channels are enabled.
