I'm trying to sell a 500 GB Maxtor HDD to a co-worker but, in order for me to do that, i must install his Windows XP (in Portuguese) on to it with the motherboard he has (K8V-SE). Problem is that no matter what i do, i can't install it because it doesn't detect the HDD I'm aware that i need a floppy for the Promise driver but i've tried both his SP2 and SP3 CDs and i still can't get it to detect the HDD However, i tried installing my XP SP2 (in English) and was successfull @ 1st try ... With the Portuguese SP2 CD, i press F6 to load the SATA drivers in the floppy and, though it says it detects the HDD, later, it says it doesn't find any HDD to install the OS on. With the Portuguese SP3 CD, i press F6 to load the SATA drivers in the floppy and it says Windows already has newer drivers for this HDD but, if i choose the newer drivers, later in the install, i get a "no disk detected" and, if i choose to install the floppy drivers instead, it asks me to press "S" to accept the drivers only, when i press "S", nothing happens ... .I tried pressing the keys next to "S" and, when i pressed "E", it said it accepted the HDD drivers and then, later in the install, "no disk detected": ARGH!!!!!! Why can i install in English but not in Portuguese? Any ideas as to what's wrong?
