  1. Here's the deal:
    Got 2 120gig Seagate SATAs installing to a clean motherboard (Asus a7n8x) and it won't recognize the HDs! Got on the seagate website and they say use the F6 function upon setup and load drivers on floppy. So here's my problem. I bought these SATAs OEM with no cables/drivers/etc. Does anyone know where I can get the drivers for these drives? (Seagate Barracuda ST3120026AS) If you happen to have one, would it be possible to send me this via email or http?
    I really appreciate all your help..

    You do not need drivers for the HDDs, you need the drivers for SATA controller on your board.

    You can download them HERE.

    Unzip them on a floppy & when you start the Windows install, hit F6 & it will look for drivers on the floppy drive. Once the drivers are loaded, the install process will be able to find the HDDs & offer to install Windows on the HDD of your choice.

    Have fun.
