Re: booting with sata drives
Try to load the software the HDD came with and that should recognize it, then set it as boot drive, and restart and boot from CD.

Oh you got OEM, then download it from the website.

Re: booting with sata drives
It should work just fine. Just pop in your CDROM and boot from that. Then it will recognize it in WindowsXP setup provided you have the BIOS detecting it. If the BIOS isn't then you have to go into config, etc.

Zen, you didn't lkisten to him and me. He got OEM so he doesn't have a CD so i said download it. When i popped in m,y raptor i popped in software, the SOTWARE recognized it, then i changed it to boot drive and yea.

I had the same problem with my asus a8v but when I dled the promise drivers instead of the via it worked (the asus manual tells you to use the via ones)
