+ 0 Votes Download and burn a Linux live CD distro robo_dev 3 years ago If it will load and run Linux, then your hardware is fine. Do you have a SCSI and/or RAID drive? You say it asks for a driver and you do not install it? Can you see the hard drive in BIOS setup? + 0 Votes Well given the driver it wants Tony Hopkinson Updated - 3 years ago is for the hard drive(s) refusing to install it, is going to cause a wee issue.... Either you need to update your Bios so it detects properly. Force the configuration to something compatible, (may be possible but will almost certainly cause problems). Or find the driver and load it, you should have it with the kit, or you can probably download it and burn it on to a cd or some other media you can browse to when the option comes up. + 0 Votes The driver that Windows is asking for OH Smeg 3 years ago Is for the HDD. As when XP was made there where no SATA Drives it can not ask for a SCSI, RAID or SATA Driver just what was available when the OS was constructed so it's asking for what it thinks is needed not what is actually needed. Assuming that you have a Serial ATA Drive here you need to enter the BIOS make sure that it's being correctly identified and set it to ACHI Mode if available or if you are using a Plug In SATA Card you need to include the Plug in Card's driver. To get around this you need to press the F6 Key when the first blue screen appears and wait till you are prompted to insert the driver in to the A Drive. You'll need to copy the Necessary Driver to the Root of a Floppy if you have one, or make a Slipstreamed Install Disc to include the SATA Driver. If you want to Slipstream a Install Disc you can use nLite which is available free here http://www.nliteos.com/download.html Just remember to read the destructions on their Web Site listed here http://www.nliteos.com/guide/ And include any Service Packs, Drivers and Hot Patches that you want to. OH and BTW which part of your Brother did you use to make this computer? I've never tried building computers from Organic Matter and it sounds interesting? I made a computer from my brother Col + 0 Votes Answers wompai Updated - 3 years ago Thnx for all the quick replies, but I'm just gonna answer some of your questions: -I have an IDE HDD, so I don't need to install SATA drivers. -It asks me wether I want to install a non-windows SCSI/RAID driver or not... This is what it literally asks me. I don't think it asks me for a SATA driver. -I have used that CD on more than 1 pc, (I used it on 3) so I think there's nothing wrong with the CD. -Yes, I can see and manage the HDD in the BIOS setup.

It's really not a big deal and I'm not in a hurry of solving it, but it would be nice if I could solve that also. Thank you for all the replies!
