XP wont display SATA HDD

  Leehndrsn 10:03 21 Sep 2007

I originally had a 250gb maxtor SATA drive that had vista on it as my only hdd, I have since installed a 80gb IDE drive and set it as my primary with XP loaded onto it, the problem I have now is XP wont show my SATA as being installed, also doesn't appear in the bios. I'm not wishing to keep vista on it but I also don't want to format it as I have lots of data on the drive and will just remove the windows file etc.

Is there any way to have XP find it? As far as i'm aware I have installed the sata driver from the mobo cd and I don't know if it will make a difference but the IDE has the jumper set to primary...any help would be appreciated!
