  1. Hello.

    Here is my config:
    WinXP SP1
    MB Gigabyte 8IPE1000
    HD Maxtor PATA 80 Gb

    I have following problem:
    When I try to install to my system Samsung SATA HD, in the BIOS it says - OK.
    But when the windows logs in, it every time finds: "Primary IDE controller", "Secondandary IDE Controller", plus one more "IDE controller" for which it fails to install drivers "Driver is not tailored to work on this platform"...

    In the DeviceManager 2items "IDE controller" are marked with yellow "!"

    However, the new HD is located, and works.

    Please advise.
