Sata Driver?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this should be in the mobo forum but w/e Ill shoot

Hi there - I was wondering if anyone could help me find a driver for my Seagate Barracuda on my biostar T-force 570 mobo.

Also what do I need to enable in the bios to make sure that the sata drive is recognized?, I went through and checked the obvious things but I would feel more secure being told what I need.

Im sure that all the cables are plugged in properly (sata cable + power cable... easy). The hard drive is not dead, Im pretty sure as I tested a hard drive that I know works with the same result and the only thing left is the driver and the bios setup

all help is very much appreciated!

I had the same annoyance with my old Gigabyte GA-8N SLI Royal, it wasn't detected as well, and nothing would change it, keep in mind that drivers/controllers will only allow the operating system to recognize the hard drive, but it will not affect the BIOS in anway. If you need help finding a controller, they should be on the motherboard CD that came with it.

Yupp - problem is that I dont have windows installed yet

And I know that the bios is separate - I was just saying that it is either one or the other as far as a problem

all you have to enable in BIOS is the sata controller, and possibly ports...

Other than that you don't need SATA drivers. Or at least I didn't until I did RAID. Just install windows...it should work.

Yep, here's the story, XP came out before SATA, therefore, XP doesn't officially support SATA, it does support it, but after using the proper controllers. You have to get on another PC, put the motherboard CD and look up for SATA Drivers, explore the CD yourself, then extract the correct drivers/controllers on a floppy, press F6 during Windows XP installation when asked, then use the floppy on your disc to pursue the installation.
