Gigabyte Motherboard w/ SATA
I just built a computer with the specs in my signature, and I can't get the SATA to run right. Basically, the Windows installer copies the files needed for setup, but when it restarts, the BIOS still doesn't recognize the hard drive as bootable, and it boots from the setup CD again.
I know you have to install the SATA drivers, and I don't know if it's different between different brands, but for Gigabyte, I have to use a program on the driver CD to get files onto a floppy so I can tell the Windows installer to setup the SATA properly. However, when I open the menu in DOS to choose the particular SATA driver set I need, it freezes! Also, when I try to manually run the file to extract, it says that it can't create any of the directories or open any of the files. URGH! HELP!
Please note that I'm trying to do this on the computer that I built. Would it make a difference to try to get the drivers onto floppy on another, already-working computer?
