Default Re: New WD SATA ?

i had the same problem with my new WD sata II 250GB , didnt want to get recognized. anyway turned out to be a dead sata cable, luckily my motherboard came with a spare .

check in your BIOS that sata in slots ...... are enabled , and that your sata cable is working

When you start the installation you will see at the bottom press F6 to install 3rd party drivers. press F6 put in the floppy and follow the directions.
not necessarily, if the BIOS is outdated then maybe yes but normally no

You are correct. But with this model I checked their website and it said that you had to. they even had a FAQ sheet on how to do it that I posted earlier. Good thinking on checking the SATA cable. With the fact sometimes bios sees it and sometimes not that is very possible.
