Question about Gigabyte GA-8KNXP Motherboard
I am reinstalling windows XP on to my computer. I have 4 SATA hard drives working the C drive is pluged into the SATA0_SII slot and in the BIOS I had under the Peripherals I Enabled "Onboard H/W SATA" plus had the "Serial ATA function" set to BASE. Like this I could read all four drives.
When I went to install windows from the CD it could only read two drives neither of which was the C drive. I didn't format C yet so I tried some settings.
When I plugged the C drive into the SATA0_SB slot, windows would come up with an error, so I Disabled the "Onboard H/W SATA" now windows will start however it only reads two of the four drives.
I have played around with many of the BIOS settings, and where I plug C in but all I can get is either to read all 4 drives with C as the 3rd or 4th drive so windows does not find it to reinstall XP or move the c drive to the SATA0_SB slot and I only have two hard drives.
So my question is, is there something I am doing wrong can I have C drive as the first disk and read all 4 SATA drives at the same time.
Check motherboard manual it seems you may have the sata drives plugged into wrong number socket they should have numbers on them sata 1 etc
