Hello ! I have motherboard MS6378 (Microstar) and SATA disk 500 GB. I want to install win xp on it. But I can not. It seems that I need some SATA drivers but can not find it. Do anybody has any...


Ludvik,
The motherboard model that you listed doesn't have support for SATA drives. Are you sure that's the correct model? If so, that's your problem, unless you are using a third-party SATA PCI controller. Then I would need to know the model of that to find the driver you are requesting.
I know this doesn't answer your question, but if it helps please rate positively.

How to reformat PC


Boot to your XP Pro OS CD and hit enter to load OS. Hit f8 to accept agreement. Delete present partition and you'll get an option to format the C drive and load a fresh version of XP. If you don't want to load XP again- boot to the XP disk and go into the Recovery console - after logging in, type format at the C: prompt.

Wants to reformat drive when trying to access.


Install the drive as a secondary drive on known working computer. Go into it via windows explorer, locate and backup the files you want on a usb stick or external hard drive. Format the drive, load your OS, and reinstall the files you saved from the drive before you formatted it.

Hi, I got a free HP compaq desktop, the small ones, is 2.66hz it was working fine, but i don't have the password for the administrator in a xp pro, so I just reinstall a new copy of XP but now this...


please load xp again and press f 6 when you see it on the screen to load sata devices .
sata softwares and drivers are required in certain computers to load windows so while loading you will be asked to load those drivers through a floppydrive, so u must have
1)sata raid drivers (according to the hard ware installed in hp.)this piece of hard ware will not allow xp to boot if you dont give its drivers through a floppy drive(during installation and setup of windows.
so u must now have
1 floppy drive(usb)
2 a floppy disk with sata drivers
3)usb port to attach the usb floppy drive
after loading xp you will see xp running trouble free.
a easy solution is to load vists and the drivers are already there in vista cd.

Failing install of PCI SATA Drive


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.

Can't Enter Setup/Can't Access BIOS


Could be that your PATA drive is pooched. Have you tried accessing the bios with the sata drive in, how about with both drives connected, how about with none.

Try a ps2 keyboard as well, as it may work on the legacy bios option.

Boot Failure


i am assuming you have allowed the bios to detect that there is a different hard drive fitted as it will be looking to boot from an non existent drive. If you have fitted a new HDD with an operating system already on it then you will have to repair windows as its a change in hardware. If you cant get the bios to see the drive then the motherboard has an IDE or Sata connector problem.
