If the 160 gigabyte drive happens to be SATA 2(3 gigabits/sec)(Like HDS721616PLA380) you may need to use a jumper to force it to 1.5(I sure hope this drive has that option.). I know for a fact that early Via SATA does need this to be done(My Seagate drives had a jumper for this problem.).

I found some hope for you. You will need another system to do this, but it will tell the drive to run @ 1.5gigabits/sec

So you want Feature Tool

It might be a cable issue. Can you try a different one?

Do you have another system to attempt to use the Feature Tool to set the drive to SATA 1.5 on?

The reason I say this is my old VIA based K8V SE did not see any 3 gigabit/sec drives either. They both have VIA VT8237 based chipsets to support the SATA ports.

I was lucky because my drives did just have a jumper, but you will need to use that tool on a system that can see the drive to set SATA 1.5gigabit/sec

Normally that just means a typo on the key. Watch out for things like look similar like 6 and G as well as 8 and B. Maybe even have someone else read you the key to ensure nothing is missed.

0 and O and 1 and I look similar but are not supposed to be used on Windows keys from what I hear.

Its not a product key issue, when i put xp installation cd and boot from cd , it will loads the installation files and at the end i mean before starting installation process it throws an error wrong code, it does not allow me to do anything.

Strange, Maybe your CD is has developed an error or something. Do you have access to another one?
