Advent PC with XP home. IDE is on the way out. MOBO has SATA socket. Plug in Maxtor SATA, PC won't boot. MOBO is a AGP 8X (at least, that's what the label says). No floppy drive. I assume this is a drivers problem with XP?
Thanks woodchip. Plugged the SATA drive in and booted to the BIOS. Saw the new drive and the boot order was IDE, CD-ROM, SATA. Looked promising, so exited and boot up froze on the Windows screen. Not sure where to go now?
