hi all! was looking through this forum over some of the older posts and found out that most people got quite satisfactory answers around here, hence the decision to ask for some help over here.
i've got a seagate barracuda 200gb sata hdd that is giving me a headache to install. basically i've installed a pci sata controller card, which seems to be running fine. (got a display showing that controller was detected, and the drive is attached to it.) problem is, xp can't seem to 'see' the drive at all, even though it is connected and there are no apparent conflicts.
i've tried to remove my ide drive, and just using this sata drive to do a clean installation of xp on that, but the setup shows that no mass storage devices were detected. (i've hit the F6 button, placed in my floppy with the drivers, but still didn't work.)
I know there is definately someone brilliant enough out there who can solve this problem! please enlighten me!
p.s: will gladly post any and all required information. (except for banking/credit card details )
