Hi all, well... I just bought a new Seagate 500gb hd, hooked it up and figured it was time to format with windows xp home....wrong. I get to the setup screen and it says that windows xp cannot detect a hard drive. I have created 2 different floppy with 2 different sets of drivers. One from my mobo's CD and another from a tech support person from the place where I purchased my pc from. The two that I have tried were SIL3132 Base Controller Driver and nVidia nForce 32bit SATA RAID Driver and it still gives me the no hard drive can be detected error. If anybody out there could help me out and please help me find what I need to do it would be greatly appreciated as it will cost me about 130 bucks to get it done where I bought my computer at and that is 130 dollars I cant afford. I have an ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Mother Board and the hd that I bought is a Seagate ST3500418AS 500GB SATA2 7200rpm 16MB Hard Drive. If anybody could plz help I have been going at this for about a week now and I am going out of my head. Thanks in advance.
