this machine is a ga-8s661fxm-775 gigabyte motherboard which ive downloaded all information and manuals 4,it has 2 seagate sata hard drives sizes being 120 and 160.

Did you want to run these in a SATA RAID or just SATA?

lol. Well first things first. Both of these drives are being detected by the BIOS correct? Assuming that you could install Windows 2000 on one of them I would assume, yes.

Curious what is your D:\ is that the CD-ROM drive or the 2nd SATA drive? You should have these plugged into SATA ports 1 & 2 and in the BIOS have SATA ports 1&2 to the ON position. This is true?
