Cannot Install SATA Hard Drive, not recognized by motherboard
Posted on 2007-12-03
Original disk has crashed. Am trying to replace. Motherboard is ASUS P4T. Bought new Maxtor 100GB hard drive, and new Silicon Image SATA PCI card. Have updated BIOS from rev. 1002 to rev. 1007. Have tried booting to my Windows XP Professional CDROM and installing SiI SATA PCI card driver; have also tried booting to "MaxBlast4" CDROM -- in either case, the CDROM boots just fine, but no hard disk drive is recognized. Have booted to floppy and upgraded the ASUS bios, but hard drive still remains undetectable.
