Your motherboard: 865PE Neo2-PFISR

Supported Motherboards: 865PE Neo2

Looks like they match

well to install the SATA Drivers on a fresh format requires you to press F6 when the WinXP first boots up and install the drivers from a floppy.

Something tells me he is missing the floppy.

The floppy loads drivers for the new interface because although the bios recognizes it, its not like a standard EIDE drive.

Look at the bottom/top of your screen as your installing windows, as Nubius said, you should see something like "Pr.ess F6 to install SATA....blah blah blah"

xotix,

Oops, You need the drivers?? I thought you need a floppy. Well ,aren't they available in your motherboard cd? .

I believe you have an Intel chipset and the mobo is in the link in one of your post.. so this leads us to here

Download the drivers, copy the required files to the floppy and install them.

xotix,

Do you want to install a new OS in your sata drive? or just use it as a secodary drive?

If you wanna use it as a secondary drive, just get the drivers from the link in the above post and install the drivers in windows [ device manager ]

If you want to install OS in the sata drive, then as said before , press F6 during OS installtion and insert the floppy with the required sata files from the sata driver package and install.

Am i missing something?
