Angry SATA Problem!?

Hey, I just built a new PC with a 120 GB SATA HD. I turn on my PC, load up the files from the floppy disk that I'm supposed to, push Enter, go on to the next Menu where WinXP will be set up, I push Enter again, but then Windows say that it didn't detect and storage devices on my machine. What's going on here?

Go into BIOS to make sure that the HD is being detected there first of all. Perhaps it was not connected properly in the first place.

If all is well as far as BIOS is concerned, then maybe you are using the wrong drivers.

Post back once you have checked BIOS and verified the correct driver.

The Floppy disk has 4 drivers on it. How do I know which one to use?
