and still Windows XP doesn't recognize it.
Consider the possibility the disk isn't setup correctly enough. Can you donwload the correct disk from the disk makers site?
I am trying to install windows xp home on my computer, with 2 250gb sata harddrives. I have the drivers, i made a disk to install them from during setup. the disk is setup correctly with all the files in the root directory.
windows setup asks me to hit f6 first thing, but pressing the key doesnt do anything?? So I let it load stuff for a minute then it tells me there is no mass storage device, i hit s and it asks me to insert the disk. I do, press enter and nothing happens. it just asks for the manufactureres disk again...
i enabled sata and the drives in the bios and set them up as raid 0
i am at a loss, i did everything correctly as far as i can tell
