I have recently constructed a new pc around a Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP Duo, Western Digital Raptor 74GB with a DVD Writer set to boot 1st for Windows XP installation.
Now I know I am supposed to add the drivers via F6 during windows installation as I actually read the manual for a change and I also know how to create a boot floppy for the drivers from my Motherboard CD.
My problem is that my BIOS does not recognise the drive to start with.
Having never installed a SATA drive before, I am not certain if it is supposed to recognise it in the BIOS prior or subsequent to installing the drivers, I think it should be prior which makes me think I have not set my BIOS up correctly.
