    Hello i have a custom built computer with MSI PM8M-V class v mother board and cannot get it to read my SATA hard drive. I have had this computer running before from the help of a no more available friend. I remember having to do something with a floppy driver and now tried to boot from the floppy i thought would do it but does not work any suggestions?

    You need to put the SATA drivers on a floppy.
    Press F6 when prompted to install SCSI or raid drivers early
    during the loading of the windows CD.
    It will prompt for the drivers.
    Follow the instructions.
    The sata drivers can be downloaded from the manufacturer website,
    or are on the motherboard CD.
