Does it see it in the BIOS??
Have you went into your Disk Management screen and format your new hard drive so it will show up in your My Computer
It does not show up anywhere, I have tried installing as master, slave and as the only drive. The Motherboard is an older one and the comp has been used ide up till now. The ide hdd is full and I would like to replace it with 160Gb sata. Mobo has two sata connections. I replaced the 160 with 1Tb in the other computer so it works fine with an all sata motherboard. I cleaned up but left xp on it. The hdd is a stargate.
