Re: What is the difference between SATA HARDRIVE AND IDE HARDRIVES?
With the XP disk, you need to make sure you have the SATA drivers on a floppy disc prior to installing. This will be on the motherboard CD, and some BIOS's may allow you to load from the CD source, but with most, you'll have to copy the file to a floppy first with the data on for SATA to install in the Windows installation for Windows to recognise your hard drive.
When "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver" shows up, press "F6". Then, press "S" to specify additional device when next screen pops up. Put the driver floppy disk you made in and press enter to continue.
If the floppy disk is loaded successfully, Windows will ask for correct driver, to continue installation.
After that has installed, Windows should carry on installing as normal.
IDE is old now, and was still around when XP came about. Sata was new, so no support was included within the installation.
