Tried the manufacturers website, bl88dy useless. Told me to go to the vendor for drivers. My problem is that I have a new computer, P4 3.4ghz cpu, with a Sata hdd. Windows XP home will not load. Simply gives me a message that there is no hdd installed. I have tried another Sata hdd, no. I have been told by forum members that it could be ram problem, changed the ram, no. Loose connections? No. remove the mobo jumper pin reboot, no. I am thinking of buying Windows 7 to see if it will recognise the drive. Apparently 7 has the required drivers. But I was thinking to get the Sata drivers and still use XP. Any clearer?
