I am attempting a clean installation of Windows XP on the SATA Drive but the system fails to recognize even the presence of the drive. This, even after stripping the system of all drives except this one, and after 'prepping' it to be bootable with MAXTOR prep. tools.
Was there ever a restriction on putting an O/S on SATA drives even on the MOBO? I have all the updates installed, "I think".
