Default trouble with my raptor HD

Ok here is my setup that i think is relevant.

Soyo P4VTP
western digital 120GB 5400rpm EIDE
western digital 60gb 7200rpm EIDE
Windows Xp SP1

Im trying to add my new WD Raptor 76gb sata.

I got windows to recognize it and i can use it. My problem is i want to make this drive my OS drive. I cannot get windows setup to see it in order to load Windows MCE.

In DISK MANAGEMENT it shows up as NTFS HEALTHY (ACTIVE)

As bios does its thing before windows loads..the raptor shows up in the sata/raid menu. I dont know what else i need to do. This is first time i've used a SATA drive.

I've tried disconnecting the other drives before windows install, but it still doesnt see it.

when you load the OS, sometimes you have to put a 3rd party driver on before it'll see it. (I think it's F6, before it starts the install process)

that's why I have one on every one I build... but I do think it can be done via CD or even USB now... depending on the mobo.

you can "slipstream" the SATA drivers onto an XP disc.
