I am using a dell dimension 8200 with 2gb of memory. the bios does not support sata. i installed a sata pci card for a dvd burner and now want to add a sata drive and install xp onto the sata drive. the current operating system recognizes the sata devices. i boot from the ide cdrom drive with the windows xp cd and press f6 at the right time and load the drivers i downloaded from the silicon image website. i have the silicon image si3114 card. the drivers are loaded but when the list of drives available to install windows only the ide drives are shown. the sata drive is not listed. this drive is formatted and partitioned into one 150gb partition and the rest in another partition. another curious thing is that the system will not boot normally. if i let it default it will go to the press f1 or f2. i can press f12 for a boot menu and boot from the list of devices, sata dvd, ide dvd, or ide hard drive. i choose hard drive and it boots fine and recognizes all the drives ide and sata.
