hey all. been scanning the forums trying to find a remedy to my issue but couldnt find anything so decided i needed to post. trying to install a WD Caviar SE16 500gb hdd onto an Asus K8V-X mobo running XP Service Pack 2. The drive isnt recognised in either bios or windows upon booting and doesnt seem to be powering up either. i have replaced both power and sata cables to no avail. the drive has been tested and formated on a friends pc and worked fine. i have considered using xp install disc F6 option but i dont have floppy drive to install drivers from. The VIA tools (and drivers i assume) that came with my mobo have been installed. any suggestions? thanks heaps.
