    Unless you have set the SATA controller in the BIOS to emulate IDE then you need a set of drivers. The motherboard CD will have these, and they need to be saved to a floppy (yes - really!).

    During the installation windows will ask for 'extra drivers' (F6 IIRC) and you put the floppy in then.

    Is it possible that now you have windows on a normal ide drive you could install the sata device drivers from the mobo cd, then install the sata drive in with the ide one and see if it works?

    Then if you only want the sata drive in th epc doa quick ghost from th eide to the sata, remove the ide and prey?

    I take it with just one drive you don't want RAID.

    In the BIOS switch off all RAID entries.

    *If* there is an option for the SATA controller to be set to emulate IDE select that, and install. Otherwise check the Motherboard CD for the driver set and make the floppy (on another machine of course).

    It isn't clear exactly what you did. You say you got windows to load before you put drivers in. Was this a complete install? If so you don't need the special drivers, as the SATA IDE emulation obviously worked. All you need to do is install the Motherboard driver set.

    So where did the drivers you mentioned come from?

    It would help if you didn't 'shout'. i.e. - don't post in caps.

    I would think it unlikely that this would be a 'fix', as the drives/controllers are auto-config for this.

    However, there *may* be a BIOS entry to do this, but we would need to know the model of the board and the make and model of the drive to be able to say for certain.

    Sounds to me like you have a duff motherboard fella...... A mate of mine had exactly the same problem, Among problem solving last to be checked was the motherboard, and va va voom after a new one was used. Sweet as candy!!

    Im guessing this screen gives you the option to continue anyway??? when trying to install certain files???
