SATA HD not recognised in Win XP SP2
Posted on 2006-07-20
Western Digital WD250JS 250Gb HD shown in bootup display screen but not found in WinXP SP2
Ran Data Lifeguard Tools from WD to install drive however it cannot find the drive.
Device manager has no entry in hard drives section (other than the IDE windows HD) or for sata or scsii devices
Initially I had to add jumper to WD250JS HD as the Asus A8V-E Delux m/board does not enable SATA 2 so the drive had to be throttled to 150mb/s sata 1 standard. (this info from WD website)
Any suggestions guys?
AMD Athlon 64 bit 3000+ processor
Asus A8V-E Delux m/board (southbridge VIA VT8237R chipset the problem with SATA 2)
2GB generic ram
x1 WD250JB IDE HD (windows drive recognised)
Win XP Professional 2002 SP2 op sys
