See the PRESS F6 TO INSTALL SATA OR SCSI DRIVERS when you are installing windows XP?

You need a floppy with the drivers...

Did you ever have a driver disk?
Do you have a keyboard that disables the F-X keys?

Took me a while to figure out why a PC wouldnt go into BIOS, PC locked the F keys until you pressed the f-lock button.

Nothing will happen, immediately, jus be sure and push it, then after it finishes loading all the stuff, it will search for the drivers. The floppy would have come wiht your motherboard not the drive. If you dont have that, go to the manufacturers website and you should beable to find the drivers there that you can mount onto a floppy.
