What is the exact error message?

Probably hasn't loaded the drivers for the SATA controller , or they are corrupted somehow , if he is using Windows XP he can do a repair , but before that you should prepare a floppy with the SATA drivers on from the Motherboard CD , start to do the repair by booting from the CD , do not select the first option to repair , select install , Windows will detect XP already there and offer to repair , say yes and when it asks for third party raid drivers load the floppy and press f6 ( I think , it will tell you ) proceed from there .
