We have this problem down at the office when swipping an SATA Hd and re-formatting it. We have to download the SATA drivers for the mob and run them from a floppy before format. First time I swiped a SATA it was nightmare for me cause I could not get the HD to be recognized. Once I got the SATA drives everything went smooth..
If your installing windows xp.. It will prompt you on install ( f-6 ) to install the SATA Raid drivers before you format and this will allow the Mob to recognize the Hd.
