I have a Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO Li1818 laptop with a SATA drive and WinXP can't find any hard drive when it tries to install. My desktop has a SATA drive and it installs on there without a problem.
Oh in that link posted it shows Hard Drives - Software Utilities
it says DOS Diagnostic Tool Ver. 7.0 (For IDE/ATA/SATA Hard Drives)
I've just tried it and it says checking for ATA and it can't find one thats because its a SATA when they show its for SATA as well.
