Neither Windows 7 sp1 install disc or Windows XP sp3 on SATA hdd recognize my old 80GB ATA Hdd.

The old ATA hdd is on raid, if i understand it correctly, and bios can detect it with its raid ulity, I can even boot the ATA hdd and run the old broken windows xp on it, but the old windows xp fails to start and computer restarts. The problems is that when I boot from windows 7 home premium install dvd, then the windows 7 fails to find the ATA hdd. Not even installed windows xp sp3 on my main SATA hdd can detect the old ATA hdd. So I have no means to format it or do anything usefull with it. Do you have any idea what the problem might be? I am a newbie so it is likely I did not provide all needed information, so free feel to ask me for it.

I found a driver ITE GigaRAID IT8212F on Gigabyte website but it says that supported OS is only windows xp and windows 2000. Does it mean that I would not be able to use the driver while instaling from windows 7 dvd?
How am I supposed to install the windows 7 on the old ATA hdd when there is no way to help the windows 7 to see it?
Something tells me that windows 7 are not meant to be installed on 10years old hardware....

So I downloaded some net drivers pack to have extra means of solving the problem, when I start to install windows 7. Luckily I did not need it, I did not even need to install the driver or to use that old hdd for testing purposes. The network and the internet were just working as soon as I installed the windows 7. I guess the Windows 7 install DVD had some drivers included.

I thank you for your assistance anyway, I learned something new, which is always good.

Its on a raid controller so you will need to load the raid drivers for windows install to see it. All versions of windows give you the option of loadiing drivers during the install process, this is when you would load them.

You other option is to turn raid off in the motherboard bios (if this is the raid built into the bios)

I turned the raid off in bios settings and all it does is that it does not detect the ATA hard drive anymore. It loaded the correct windows xp from the SATA hdd.
(I can not force it to load the SATA as master, no matter where I place to jumper in ATA drive, master slot, cable select slot, remove it completly, it always boots from the ATA drive, unless I use boot utility to boot from SATA drive manualy... great another problem, well not really a problem I coud just unplug it)

The motherboard is this one: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
GA-8I945PL-G

When computer starts the bios detect the two dvd mechanics which are connected to the red and black ATA connectors.
Then it checks two of the orange SATA connectors (one of them is connected to my SATA hdd).
but to start detecting/loading anything from the other two orange SATA connectors or the two green ATA connectors (one of them is connected to the old ATA hdd) it needs to run the GigaRAID utility, which I just disabled in Bios.

Does that make any sence? that is best way I can explain it.

Try this:
onboard h/w gigaraid - enable
gigaraid function- ATA
on chip sata mode - combined
I would disable any Serial & parallel ports you are not using (leave usb ports alone)
save and reboot into the bios,
Hard disk Boot priority - find your HDD and move it to the top of the list.
save and reboot to the installation disk

The old IDE hard disk is connected to the GigaRAID IT8212F controller, but it isn't in RAID mode if you had a single drive. You shouldn't disable the controller if devices are attached to it (SATA or IDE). When you loaded Windows XP on your SATA drive, did you install the ITE GigaRAID IT8212F drivers from http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...

Drivers for Windows 7 don't exist for that controller; this is to be expected for a non-Intel controller that was relased a long time ago.

Why do you want to reuse such a small, old and slow hard disk?

I originaly just wanted to install windows 7 on this computer, but I found out that the integrated network card has drivers only for windows xp and vista. So I thought I would try to install the windows 7 on the old small 80GB hdd just to try out if the vista driver works on windows 7.
If I would just reformat the 320gb SATA hdd with windows xp sp3 and install the windows 7 on it, then I could end up in situation where I would have computer with no working internet connection and I would need to reinstall back to windows xp.
That is something I want to avoid. I could also buy new network card which has drivers for windows 7, but I want to try the vista driver first to avoid buying unnecesary hardware.

I have the 5789 version: Broadcom 5789 Gigabit Ethernet controller http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...

which has only drivers for xp and vista.
or are you saying that I can use drivers for newer broadcom cards?

meanwhile I turned the raid controler back on, installed drivers for the controler on the windows xp sp3 on the SATA drive, which I am using right now.. and I still can not see the old hdd in system manager.

Yeah, the hard disk boot priority is correct now, so it load the correct working windows xp from SATA drive, that is cool.
I also tried to set the "on chip sata mode" to combined but it did not help.. still can not see the old hhd in windows system manager.

Broadcom drivers will obviously work; they support up to Windows 8.1.

Are you saying the IDE drive is not available in Device Manager even though the drivers have been installed?

I'd just trash that old IDE drive because you won't be able to use it with Windows 7. I presume only the SATA ports connected to the ICH7 contriller are supported. At least the audio and the LAN controller are fully supported.

the drivers wich you are talking about are for Broadcom's NetXtreme Ethernet controllers:
5714, 5715, 5717, 5718, 5719, 5720, 5721, 5722, 5723, 5780 .
not for 5789. 5789 is the one I have according to my motherboard's specifications.
I already wrote it. please read.

Yes, I downloaded ITE GigaRAID IT8212F driver and unpacked it, then I went to ITE_RAID/APPLICATION and ran the Setup.exe . The installer was acting all fine and said it was done. So I guess I installed the driver correctly, but I am not sure, first time doing it.
Restarted the computer and loaded the Device Manager, it is not there.
I agree, I am going to just trash that old hdd.
But I still do not know whenever I should risk installing the windows 7 on my main hdd, when there are not any windows 7 drivers compatibile with my intengrated network card. Only for Vista.

Also I am really frustrated with all of this, working on it for two days. I just wanted to install windows 7, so simple, Did not want to get through all of this trouble because this computer is 10 years old garbage :(

I know how to read and I also know how to inspect installation packages.You definitely didn't download the drivers and inspect the .inf file, have you? You relied on a brief description that lists older controllers to determine that yours isn't supported, but why would Broadcom support an old 5714 controller and not the newer 5789 controller? That wouldn't make much sense.

The 64-bit file for Windows Vista, 7 and Server 2008 (edited to remove other controllers, etc.) is in the spoiler - the 32-bit is similar.

What more do you need to understand that it's supported? Did you check the PCI Vendor number of your controller against the list in the .inf file?

Broadcom and Intel controllers are widely supported.

Wasn't your motherboard released in 2006? Again check the PCI_VEN of your LAN controller and make sure it's in the Broadcom .inf file.

Ah, I just download the windows 7 32 driver and it indeed list 5789 in the .inf file. Not sure why Broadcom's website confuse its users thou..
Yea it might be released in 2006, I do not know, that 10 years old hw was just rough estimate.
I am in different part of our City right now and I can no longer access the cumputer to check PCI_VEN thing.
Thanks for your assistace so far! Seems that this could have a happy end at least.

I checked it and it found only:
%BCM5789% = BCM5789_LHinst.NTx86.6.1, PCI\VEN_14e4&DEV_169d
When I add SUBSYS_E0001458 then it shows no results.
Could that be enought for it to work?

What's the hardware Ids of your controller?

Right-click My Computer, Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager, Right-click the controller, Properties, Details Tab, Select Hardware Id from the dropdown list.
