But why then windows xp runs ok. no problems with it.
maybe in bios it is possible to set that sata drives would work like paralell ata (not 150mb/s but maybe it would work without data corruption)?

I think the data corruption is due to the fact that the drive is actually emulating SATA but naturally runs with Paralell ATA, data corruption has known to occur with non-native SATA drives

I know Seagate drives are native SATA, and I'm pretty sure there are a few others, but I know the WD 160GB SATA's are non-native

You need to configure the SATA controller (even if it is onboard) for the hard drive.

You also need the SATA Controller drivers on floppy drive for Windows 2000 (Professional) and press F6 during installation.

You should be able to access the SATA controller using "My Computer" -> "Properties" -> "Hardware" -> "Device Manager" and installing the correct drivers for Windows 2k.
