So apparently I can't even get the WinXP setup to recognize my SATA HDD even with the drivers from a floppy disk. The manual for the mobo says that it requires the drivers on a floppy disk in order to install it. I've set the SATA mode in BIOS to "Sata2" instead of "RAID" since I only have one HDD. Whenever I try to use the RAID utility, it can't see my HDD but when you enter BIOS, the HDD is present. Any ideas?

EDIT: Just tried plugging the HDD into the SATA_RAID2 port on the motherboard and it's picking it up. Wonder why any of the SATA ports aren't working right?

Ok Windows XP is installed after I plugged it up to the SATA_RAID2 port and enabled SATA2 mode in BIOS. But any other configuration will not work. Why?
