Trying to Install XP pro on my puter, setup doesn't recognize my HD, I have the driver and press F6 at startup then "S" when prompted. It loads the driver but once it has loaded all the other apps and actually trys to start windows, there is no HD. Intel P4 with ht, 512MB pc2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM, 160GB Serial ATA hard drive. I had Vista on the machine, formatted it so I could install XP Pro and now I am stuck.

Any help would be gladly accepted :thumbsup:

Could you let us know the make and model of your system (plus anything you've added to it) so we can troubleshoot this issue?
