    This can be a bit testing... My SP2 will install then I'm told that It cannot see the HD... I tried both drivers from asus... Where do I find procedure?

    as you may know I'ts working now, but time to reinstall. I have had problems in the past doing this and required help. Now I'm trying it by myself, I get so far where it says that it's installing then I get an error message that says I think it's line 82... I'll right it down when I try agin, but bassically my HD is invisible to the board. I think that I have the right drivers and I'm sure that I saved it properly... is that enough info?

    I used the f6 function to initiate useing the driver from the floppy, then I was able to continue with the installation. This is where the stones lie in the path. all the drivers came directly from asus. Which are the promise driver and the via driver for xp... my board needs to see the hd, and these aren't working

    I'm not giving up on this... I downloaded from asus both drivers, saved them to the floppy along with "MakeDisk AFIE MFC Application and TXTSETUP.OEM" problem is they won't all fit to one disk... oh, I did them one at a time(along with what I mentioned here) so there should not be any confusion. How should I be making the floppy? I though that was easy... maybe I'm wrong, I admit experience is probably the key...lol

    Makedisk is not very good to use for making the floppies.

    LINK then scroll down to SATA Setup.
