Internal SATA drive

By malisaroj ·
I have Windows XP Sp2 installed, the Sata drive is connected to MotherBoard's Sata port ( SATA 0 ), Its sounds strange, my Windows recognize my SATA drive as USB drive. It a "GIGABYTE GA-M61SME-S2 AM2" motherboard. I have installed windows in this drive.

Have you installed the Gigabyte M'Board Drivers?

XP doesn't have Native Support for SATA Drives and added to a NVidia Chipset which is what you're M'Board is anything is possible. But here if the system is correctly configured & working what's the problem?

Windows can give a False Positive or wrong message so in other words it can & does lie to you about many things particularly when you implement newer technology than when the Version of Windows that you are using was written.

My favorite Error Message of all time occurred in the DOS Days when I got a Device 6 is not installed message. After much digging around I eventually discovered that the unlisted Device 6 is supposed to be the CPU so this Error message couldn't have been displayed as without a CPU the unit just can not run.
