I have just installed a seagate 320g sata 2 hard drive with 16mb cache.Installation went fine but when you boot up on the black screen it says sata 1,is there a problem or is it just me.I have a year old mesh pc with a asus A8N-E motherboard and xp.I would be grateful for any advice.I am not a novice on pcs but no expert either.

Is your motherboard sata 1 and not sata 2.

There might be a jumper on the drive to change it to sata 1/sata 2, and is it set to sata 1.

couple of suggestions to check out.

Your board has a SATA 2 controller click here so I suggest that you check your drive has the sat 1 restriction jumper removed.
