PDC20378 setup problem

By edgardoamurao ·
Hi! This is my first time to post..i need help on how to setup properly windows xp fresh install to boot from sata drive that is connected to pci controller card(PDC2037. i just followed what on the sites said..

- create a copy of driver disk into the floppy drive
- boot from cd installer(winxp pro) and press F6 to install third party driver for sata
- select proper driver and it continues to go to the menu
- after pressing enter it did not detect any hard drive installed

my pci card detects there's no array defined..but i don't want to setup my harddrive in raid array because it has data in its second partition.

this is my system specs
-mobo: a7v266-c
-cpu: athlon xp +1600
-memory: 512 mb
-hdd: seagate 160gb (set jumper to 1.5gb, partitioned)
-pci sata controller: pdc20378 chip
