Hi - I am trying to install a Seagate 160gb ATA100 drive. It’s correctly installed physically as primary slave. BIOS can see it fine, however windows does not show it.
I tried the troubleshooting guide on Seagate’s website, but on this page I think I found some clue as to the problem:
I don’t have a “hard disk controllers” section in my device manager. I do have IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
The seagate troubleshooting guide keeps referring to “your Add-On ATA HBA controller card”. I don’t have an add-on ATA HBA controller card that I know of.
I’m lost, can anyone give me a word of advice on this? I have XP SP2. Since my BIOS recognizes the drive as 160GB, I am thinking the issue is not with the >137 GB problem. XP SP2 shouldn’t have a problem with it either.
