|Hi all, I have just built a new system and am trying to install my 200 GB SATAii Maxtor HD.|
The motherboard is ConRoeXFire-eSATA2made by Asrock.
In the bios the system asks me which mode I want to run my SATA drive on. The options are RAID, IDE or ACHI (or something very similar).
I don’t want RAID and ideally nor IDE so I select ACHI. When trying to install XP I have created a SATA disk from both the motherboard CD and the Asrock website, however ever time I go to select ICHR7 and click OK (During xp setup after pressing F6) I get an error on the disk.
I have swapped the disks but that does not fix the problem, I guess I am asking if it would make a difference if I picked IDE (tested and XP installed fine) else does anyone known where I can get another SATA disk with the south bridge controller software on it.
Thanks in advance
P.s this system is for gaming!
