As I described on the title the issue is that Windows XP it shows the drives on the device manager but it wont on My Computer. So the next step I was going to do it was to reinstall windows xp but on the SATA drive. When i got to the installation process i just follow the normal steps to install, i also install the SATA drivers from the floopy disk that came with the MOBO. After that the screen shows me the option to select the drive or the partition tha i want to install so i selected the SATA drive. After that i got a message that says (dont remember the exact meesage) "Windows cannot be intalled on this partition" so the next step ive done was to remove the ATA drive and try to reinstall again with the SATA and still giving me that message and I dont know what else to do. I know that the SATA drive was working fine I have a lot of data that i want but i was just trying to install windows on another folder.
