Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RZ44 (PCV-RZ44G) PC Desktop
SONY VAIO PCV-RZ44G Pentium 4 2.8ghz
My original ATA HDD crashed and I am attempting to install PCI SATA card and 500GB seagate SATA.
PCI card seems to boot but HDD won't recognize. SInce I was able to use DiskWizard to partition the new SATA drive on an old IBM k2 333mhz 6GB with XP installed thot I was golden. But on install attemp in Sony, the Recovery disks say "no drive" and fresh XP Pro install says partitions are not XP compatible, even tho XP install said the same thing when I also made a partition with XP install during an earlier install attempt. Seems like it's a conflict of some kind???? MOBO is apparently Asus P45D VX. Orignial Desk Top came as MCE2004
You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.
The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.
If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.
