Having a problem with a new installation of Windows XP onto a SATA HDD. I have read the forums related to this topic already and am familiar with the install to floppy issue. I am having the same exact issue, and perhaps I am a total newb but I have located the SATA controller from PROMISE and the MoBo manufacturer http://www.biostar-u...asp?model=M7VIK but I can't fit the dang file onto a floppy disk!

I have followed the instructions on http://seagate.custk...sp?DocId=184911

I think the SATA driver as

I own an old Biostar MoBo M7VIK
HDD is a Seagate 500gb

Just looking to get another system up for random file storage and applications. Forgot to mention my BIOS is not recognizing the HDD as well.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

Looks like the chipset of this Biostar motherboard is made by VIA. Try this link to download the driver and follow the instructions in the same page.
