    My SATA HD is a Seagate Barracude 120gb NCQ, and my Motherboard is an Asus P4S800DE.

    When I try and install XP it tells me that it did not detect a HD. So I tried copying the Sis Raid drivers onto a floppy then pressing F6 to install them during XP setup as was described in the Asus manual. Didn't work. Then I tried flashing my Bios to a newer version that apparantly solved any Sata detection problems. Still no luck.

    Can anyone suggest anything?
