Default SATA Drivers?

Hey,

I've just built a new PC and am now trying to install Vista onto it. I'm at the point of the harddisk selection etc and am having trouble getting the SATA drivers working. I assumed that the SATA drivers were on the Motherboard disc, so I put that in and loaded the one titled Serial ATA Driver from the chipset folder. Nothing came up.

SO I wanna know where I can get the correct drivers or if i'm doing anything wrong?

The motherboard is an ASUS P5GC-MX and it's a WD Caviar 500GB SATA

Thanks,

Matt

It's possible it's looking for RAID drivers.... That's the only thing I can think of.

I've tried all the drivers on the ASUS disc, and can't find any drivers online. It's getting really frustrating.

I have never had to put sata drivers on during install before only raid drivers. Is it not seeing your hard drives at all?

Sounds like it may be a problem with the BIOS. Make sure the BIOS is detecting the hard drive...

Lol. Just as you posted that I went off to check the BIOS, sure enough there was nothing there. I then realised I needed to unplug the power to get to something inside the case. I feel so stupid now lol.

Thanks guys,

Matt

usually the drive having no power MIGHT affect the drives performance, i get really slow transfers when my power cable isnt plugged

dont worry, ive had my fair share of dumb mistakes
