SATA drive wont load XP

  Elrond 16:21 27 Apr 2004

A friend very fortunatley won a brand new SATA drive in a competition. As he didnt have a motherboard to support it he decided to get one. He set it all up and for some reason it wont load winXP. It just freezes up he says. He has managed to install Win98 on it but would rather XP. Any suggestions? Cheers

Are the appropriate SATA drivers being loaded from floppy during by pressing F6 when installing XP.
