Default Hardisk Problem~~~~

Recently i build a PC. Pls refer to bottom for the hardwares.

But the SATA i bought have to install third party SATA raid controller driver first only can detect the hardisk thus install window xp pro sp1. ( i press f6 during window setup and install the controller driver)
BUt during window installation it prompt out that the software i installing didnt pass window logo test and recommend me to abort installation to avoid system crash. I ignore it and continue installation.
After installation the window faced problem bcosz the softwares that i installed cant open. Error came out saying that cannot locate the file.

I suspect is the HDD problem cosz b4 any intallation on the HDD, i tested the disk with Seatools and it passed the test. But straight away after window installation, i tried tested again the HDD but failed the test.

For what i know, usually SATA do not need to install any driver isnt?
I plan to buy another Maxtor ATA133 HDD to replace the stupid SATA HDD. Does anyone have any ideas???

Wrong, all sata drives require drivers for windows xp setup...

Try reloading xp setup and formatting drive.
