Installing XP on Sata drive

  Drazpaz 16:17 25 Sep 2004

I am trying to do a fresh install of winxp pro SP1a on my Maxtor serial ata drive. However it just can't see the drive when it gets to the installation screen. I have tried installing third party drivers, from my mobo disc and website, by pressing F6, but it has no effect. I am running dry of ideas to what is going wrong. I am using an Asus K8V SE mobo. I did hear that oem discs of xp(am using one) don't work with some sata drives, don't know if it is true though. Please help Thanks
