I am trying to install Western Digital Caviar black 1 TB Sata Hard Drive. Windows XP will not detect the Hard
Disk. I tried using an old Western Digital diagnostic CD that did not work. It economized it and formatted it but
when I put in the XP disk it still did not detect it. I have brand new cables for my brand new Hard Drive.
I also so tried some troubleshooting slipstreaming files and creating a new set up disk but that did not work
Any reason why you have the SATA mode set to RAID?
Either set SATA mode to IDE (emulation) or load the chipset driver using F6 (providing you have a Floppy drive).
No idea why it's set to RAID I am just letting you know of the present settings, I am new to this. Don't have a working floppy those things are kind of outdated. But can get one if necessary, will try your solutions as soon as I can, thanks for responding!
