Default Win XP Install loop

I am in a loop with the install. I have 2 SATA Drives and the XP Pro sees a lost of the 2 disks with existing partitions and unpartitiond space. Not sure what I have to do at this point. I have reformatted both disks through xp but xp still won't load.
Any ideas?

Yes I did. pressed f6 and drivers loaded just fine. This happens in RAID1 or reconfigured in as 3 seperate sata drives with different drivers. Nothing seems to work. Microsoft support stinks too!
The hardest part is understanding them.
