I'm trying to install a new WD3200KS in my rig and I'm having some problems. My board is a GA-P35-DS3L which supports SATA II and apparently this hard drive does too according to the WD site.
I did discover that I should enable AHCI and native mode in my BIOS setting. Please let me know if that is not is not the case!
I'm trying to install a fresh copy of XP Pro and of course I got the BSOD and the SATA drives disappeared in the BIOS due to AHCI being enabled.
So I need to copy the Sata drivers from the GB website to a floppy, correct? I poked around the GB site and didn't find them. I do have the CD that came with my mobo. Would it contain the drivers I need? I guess I can check that out now.
Basically I just want to know if I'm going about the right way to install this SATA HDD based on my hardware configurations. BIOS settings, XP SATA drivers, etc.
