New PC bought from a mate. The mobo is a A7N8X-E and the HDD is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200GB.
The SATA drive cannot be detected in Windows setup and I really do want Windows set up on this drive, not another IDE drive 'as a way past it'. Tried BIOS recognition and F6 to install driver on Windows setup
Now, I have used Google and some people are suggesting a bootable disk but I don't know where how or what to put on there - I even d/led the drivers but I don't know what is meant to go on the disk.
I considered cloning from an IDE install and hat is proving to be a real headache.
I just want to set up XP on this SATA - surely it can't be that hard?
Can anyone help?
