I Finished putting together a computer and i had a ultra ATA hard drive. The computer didnt regognize the hdd as being there so i returned it for an SATA hdd. After installing the SATA Hard drive the bios recognizes the hdd there at the begging as a maxtor hdd but when i attempt to install windows i get the 0x0000007F stop error right after it says Starting Windows across the bottom. Im trying ot install XP Pro.

SATA drives needs drivers installed during the installation process when the install disk loads youll see a prompt to install third party drivers at that point you need to install the drivers for the motherboards SATA controller you just stick a floppy disk with them on in and it will install it from that.

The only reason you would need to enable RAID is if you're actually trying to set up a disk array - it sounds like you only have one hard drive so don't worry about you RAID BIOS options.

Try clearing the CMOS, resetting your BIOS settings, create a SATA floppy driver disk from BIOS, set the system to boot from your optical drive, try installing Windows, and insert your floppy when prompet by the setup
