If you want to install XP on a sata drive, you need to hit f6 and install the sata driver (must have come with your mobo). Or else, XP won't see your sata drive. If you bough an Intel mobo, it came with a CD and a floppy disk.

DB what are you talking about, i never had to do that and i think i have set up more than 15 comps with satadrives in, i usually just put in the xp cd and everything runs fine. I have heard of a guy doing this thou so give it a shot.
The only time i have experienced that i could not find the sata drive was because someone had gotten the great idea to ship the mobo with everything in the bios disabeled...

Well, it did come with a floppy that said "RAID" or something like that on it.
I dont have a floppy drive. Are you sure its a floppy?
If it is, would it be possible for me to take it to my dad and have him port it over to a CD on his comp?
Meanwhile, when do I hit F6?
Sounds like a stupid question, but I've been hitting F6 and nothings been happening.
You might need to install a Floppy on the computer for the first install.
If I remember correctly, when I first assembled my computer, I spent 2-3 days trying to figure out why the hell it wasn't booting... I don't remember how I found but I connected a Floppy, booted, and I saw that I needed to install the sata driver!
I guess you have to press the F6 buttons right when the computer start.... somewhen near the memory check!
