I purchased a Maxtor Diamondmax10 100gb S-ATA hard drive from Best Buy today, also picked up a Radeon X850 Pro. Installed all the hardware and ran the HD config disk and partitiond the drive and formatted it. When I went to add Windows XP I hit f6 and added the disk that the HD made to add the driver. When i hit enter it goes to the continue with xp and restore screen when I hit enter it says it cant find the hd. I went to maxtor website and got a new S-ATA driver, also went to the mobo website and got a new driver there as well but still says it cant find the hd. The maxtor software can see it just fine and tell me all about it. ANY help would be appreciated. I have noticed this is a common problem.

Mobo Asus A7V880
Radeon Xt850

Got it fixed about three hours ago with a disk maker from Asus and the updated driver.

For future notice anyone who reads this,when installing sata HDDs you get the appropriate drivers from your motherboard manufacturer not your drive manufacturer.
