Go to your device manager and change the driver for the PCI IDE Bus. It'll probably be listed as a "VIA PCI IDE Controller". Click the "Update Driver" tab, tell the wizard you want to "choose from a list", and it'll pop up with two compatible drivers, one of them being "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller". Chose that one and click OK then reboot after it's done.

When Windows comes back, verify that it's using that driver and check to see if it's using UDMA modes instead of PIO. I had to do this with my old MSI K7T Pro 2A when I dropped WinXP in it - I could not get UDMA to work with VIA's drivers at all.

Changing to Microsoft's native "Standard Dual Channel" driver worked.
