When you first boot and get the F6 option, your need to press F6.. Then, you need to load the drivers for the SATA controller.. That should have come with your system either on a floppy or a cd..
Otherwise, go to the mobo manufacturers website and get them from there..
Until the SATA controller is recognized, Windows will never load!!

does anyone else have any ideas?
my BIOS is not detecting my 250gb western digital hard drive it was working fine until i upgraded my motherboard to an Asus P5GDC Deluxe it was all going fine intil i tested an IDE hard drive with it and disconnected my SATA drive ten i reconnected it and the BIOS couldnt see it. I presume its a configuration error but i cant see it.
Ive tried rebuilding my old pc to exactly the way it was and it still dint read its looking more and more like a hard disk problem. Ive also tried loading the SATA drivers in windows XP setup and its still not reading it.
any help would be appriciated its driving me crazy Thanks
