    hey guyz, im having some trouble installing windows xp on my WD Sata HDD, im sure of all the configs in the bios (On my asus rampage formula), i mean the settings are set to configure sata as IDE but still, the setup runs normally untill it reaches the "Welcome to setup" screen where i press enter to start windows xp installation and then the system restarts and starts all over, ive also tried intalling windows xp sp2 that includes (sata drivers) but same result..

    i would really appriciate your help guyz...

    thanx

    You really need to load the sata drivers during installation but the setup normally stops v. quickly if you don`t. Might be a different problem.

    Did you get a floppy disk with the Sata/Raid driver with your mobo.. and do you have a floppy disk drive?
