Default Re: Installing a SATA hard drive on xp...

thanks for the replys guys, i firstly put it into the raid controller by accident at first but now its in the correct socked and vios does regocnise it, i went on the maxtor website and got some software to burn onto a bootable cd, and i went into that, still with the old and new hard disk attached. ant that software recognised it (running in dos) and its formatted and coping the foiles to the new drive as i type this. but when i run xp on the old hdd withe the new one plugged in, xp doesnt recognise it, the drivers and everything are installed. but i will see how it goes after its copied the files.. thanks guys

edit: xp is detectiong the drice now ( the controller was disabled in device manager) so im unisntalling sp2 so it will install xp through the exsisting xp
