Specs: XP, 2.Gb Ram
Have two IDE drives installed.
MB has two Sata connections.
Tried to install new Sata drive,copied to floppy install instructions from MB manufacturer.Installed from floppy, Windows start to install then 'No drive found'.
. Installed same drive OK on another computer which did not rquire floppy installation.Checked all connections which seemed to be OK. What am I doing wrong or NEED to do to install.

Just to clarify,
You did boot from floppy and followed instructions for installing
driver on HD?

What happened to my quote

Yes. Followed instructions after 'floppy'. Screen came up with four choices.
Only one applied, this was for XP. Others were for Win 2000, NT, etc.
Screen then showed windows was starting, then the message 'NO DRIVE. Remove floppy and reboot computer'.
Could it be the SATA controller, which has never ever been used on this comp. Don't know how to check this (if possible).
