I've recently put together a new PC using a MachSpeed Venom64 K8m800 motherboard and one SAMSUNG 160GB SATA HD. I have no other hard drives connected.
I've got the SATA drivers on floppy as created from the MachSpeed website and I have formatted the SATA HD using XP's setup.
I then boot up using the XP sp2 CD and do the usual F6 to select the drivers from the floppy. I then press enter to continue and it says "loading files" then "starting windows" then I hit enter accept agreement w/ F8 and then It takes me to a page that says Unknown Disk 0GB, Unknown Disk 0GB, and then Unknown Disk 160000 mb. I try to partition into two 80GB Partition and install XP on C: and it says XP can't be installed on this type of disk. It says raw partition not NTFS or FAT.
Also Bios won't rtecognize the HD at all.
I would appreciate any help on this. I have been tearing my hair out for days!
