Like others, I'm having problems with a fresh XP install on my Mobo and SATA Harddrive. I am able to install and operate Windows 98, just unable to upgrade. I receive the infamous "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer."
ASUS K8V SE Deluxe motherboard
Seagate ST3160023AS 160 GB SATA hard drive
Windows XP Home Edition (no SP 1)
Items I have done:
1. Load Windows 98 - done
a. Hard drive is detected and usuable.
2. Push F6 and load ASUS driver "WinXP Promise FastTrak 376/378 Controller" - problem persist
3. Update BIOS - only initial release for K8V SE board
4. Ensure SATA is plugged into correct slot (SATA1), not RAID SATA plug (PRI_SATA)
For those who are willing to help, here's the website for the ASUS Mother Board

I am just shotgunning now. :( Thanks in advance for your assistance.
