  1. Download SP2, and slipstream it into your install disc. You can use a program like nlite to slipstream the update. That should solve the problem.

  2. can you tell me the name of the driver i should be using
  3. I don't see a SATA driver for that motherboard. That's why you'll need to slipstream SP2 into your install disc. It's got SATA support. Here's the download link for the full SP3 download. It includes the SP2 update.

    Also, verify that the drive is showing in the BIOS. SATA needs to be enabled.
