I just received a 400 gb sata hd from my son. I bought a serial ata host controler card to hook it up to my mother board which is a PIII 1 ghz cpu with 256mb of ram.
I hooked the card up just like it said to. Then I copied the win drvs from the installation cd to a 3.5
I put my xp pro cd in the cd-rom and started the computer.
It booted to the cd and ask if I wanted to install any raida or scsi.
I pushed f6. It went through the loading of its drivers and then told me to put the floppy in and press enter.
I did and it loaded the windrvs (Silicon Image SIL 3114 SATALink Controler.
It rebooted to finish windows instalation on the sata but when it started back up it din't boot to the place it left off it restarted and I did this a few times.
Anyone got any Ideas?
I have a 15 gig hd in my ide0 now.
thanks and later
