    I installed a SATA drive on this board, with 2 cd drives. The BIOS
    recognizes the SATA, but when I try to install Windows on the SATA drive by
    booting to one of the CDs it doesn't let me. I set the first boot device as
    one of CD's, but when it boots it doesn't give me the "hit any key to boot
    form cd" message, then goes straight to the blue Windows setup screen and
    just sits there. Also when it does this, the floppy light stays on. Can
    anyone help. Thanks.

    Not that familiar with the KT880, but I had similar problems trying to
    install an SATA on a K8T800Pro Neo-2. Setting the bios to SATA and
    windows wouldn't detect it. By changing the setting from SATA to RAID
    (even though it was not a RAID installation) did the trick. Apparently
    a quirk in the K8T800/BIOS detect.

    It may work for you.

    There will be a sata driver on your mortherboard cd for you to make a floppy
    disc with sata drivers on it.

    Hit F6 when windows setup asks if you want to load 3rd party drivers and
    feed it your floppy!
