My system has intel's d875pbz motherboard with 2 WD Raptor SATA drives
and two WD 2500JBs. When I try to install winxp from cd it cannot see
the Raptor SATA drives at all. I have tried with and without RAID and
WinXP install still only sees the IDE drives. All looks fine in the
bios, P18. Any ideas?

XP doesn't know about SATA drives. SP1 fixed that.

I have the same problem. I bought D875PBZ motherboard.
The problem is my Windows XP CD is 2001 Edition (not SP1).
How do I install it to my harddisk?
I know that I need to press F6 and insert the diskette driver for serial ATA.
Where can I find the serial ATA driver and how do I make the diskette driver?

Thanks a lot

What do you mean XP doesn't know about SATA drives? On the D875PBZ, the
SATA channels are seen as regular EIDE channels, and I've installed WinXP at
least a hundred times on my SATA drives.

Now, I think the problem is the way all your drives are configured. You
would need to set each of the Non-SATA drives to one large extended
partition, and make logical drives within the extended partitions. Only the
Primary SATA drive should contain a primary partition. None of the other
three drives should have a primary partition.

It looks like the 875 board gives precedence to the regular IDE channels
when multiple Primary partitions are installed. If only 1 SATA drive has a
primary partition, than that will be the drive used as the boot drive. If
you are going to install XP to an SATA RAID config, you would need to set up
the RAID array in the BIOS, using one primary partition. If possible, copy
all the data back and forth between the other 3 drives and repartition each
drive as a single extended partition, with several logical drives if you
want different drive letters. XP will be happier with 1 extended partition
and several logical drives for the remaining drives, and the drive letters
will remain the same should you reinstall XP.

You don't need any drivers if you are installing the original version of XP
on a single SATA drive. The D875PBZ board uses the SATA channels as regular
EIDE channels. I've done this at least 100 times already.

ROFLMAO! Having to install XP at least 100 times says a lot for the
stability of the only operating system written for The Cartoon Network. It
is nice to see Microsoft is keeping their quality standards where everybody
expects to see them. <g>
