Ok, assuming you have done all of that, then it's time to list what you have tried: 1. Hard Drive Not Detected While Installing Windows 7 read the chip write down the number.btw , if you want, with XPlite , a product you can make a new XP disk that has all the sata drivers ON CD Make sure you add your driver in TEXTMODE - otherwise it won't work.

Then open the Computer Management icon in the list.

I needed a dual-boot, so I got the error listed above. maybe by the time vista reaches sp3 and vista-lite is fully developed…but for now i'm not going to waste another minute speculating!

I know you all have heard it before but the key is BACKUP?

This is very easy to fix. Try an XP SP2 CD. In your BIOS, there is a setting for the SATA controller.
