Hd is PATA? Is it the one in your sig?
What brand is the HD.
Make sure you have the Slave/Master in order! Theres always the CableSelect position on some drive that can be usefull.
most WD drives use no jumper for single drive system , when installing XP you have to hit f6 when prompted at bottom of screen to install SATA driver , the driver should be on the motherboard Disc ,you can also copy driver to floppy
Can't find your answer ? Ask !

That card probably has Native Sata (not quite sure) if so you dont usually need drivers!
