I have a S2885 Tyan motherboard. For some reason my Bios cannot see my 500gb SATA drive. However on the same computer Winxp pro recognizes it in Windows. I want to put the same O/S on the SATA drive but when I get pass where I press the F6 key, I shortly get a message that reads like windows could not find a hard drive.

If you are installing XP on it from a disk you may have to load third party SATA driver during install, usually comes with motherboard.
