I am trying to install Western Digital Caviar black 1 TB Sata Hard Drive. Windows XP will not detect the Hard
Disk. I tried using an old Western Digital diagnostic CD that did not work. It economized it and formatted it but
when I put in the XP disk it still did not detect it. I have brand new cables for my brand new Hard Drive.
I also so tried some troubleshooting slipstreaming files and creating a new set up disk but that did not work
either.

See here http://www.digitgeek.com/how-to-slipstream...ers-into-xp-cd/
http://www.howtohaven.com/system/slipstrea...ce-pack-3.shtml.

My BIOS On Chip IDE devices are set as follows:

On Chip Sata: Enabled
Sata Mode: RAID
IDE DMA Transfer Access: Enabled
OnChip IDE Channel l0: Enabled
OnChip IDE i1: Enabled
OnChip Prefetch Mode: Enabled
Onboard Lan Boot Rom: Disabled

Please help, thanks in advance.

System:
Desktop
O/S: Windows XP
RAM: 2 Gigs
Mother Board: PM8M-V (MS-7104 v. 20A)
Hard Disk: Western Digital Caviar Black Sata 1 Terabyte

The Bios setup looks right, but did you check and see if the BIOS recognizes the drive?

Why are you selecting "RAID" while using one drive? I remember some of the old boards set up a virtual RAID even with one drive, so you didn't have much choice. That board has a VIA chipset. Are any drivers required (The old "F6" at startup routine) to get the drive set up?

If i go into the BIOS i don't see it. But when i boot, and BIOS flashes i see it momentarily.

Should it be on IDE? I believe i do need drivers, i do not have a floppy for F6.

if your setting up a RAID then yes you will need drivers. if not then you need to set the BIOs to IDE.

oh and rechecking your bios settings, under sata mode it has raid-if your not using raid then it should not be set so under the BIOs

He shouldn't be setting up RAID with that drive anyway unless he enables TLER.

Try "IDE" as most systems, even the newest, run the drives under IDE emulation eventhough they are SATA.

EDIT" It has been awhile since I played with VIA chipsets, and none of those had native RAID support, so the exact setup isn't familiar to me.
