tomenneking is on a distinguished road

Default can't install win xp pro on new added sata drive

I run win xp pro with a maxor 40gb drive loade with xp pro sp3.

I added a sata raid 2 port pci host card and then installed a seagate 250gb serial ata drive.

My mb bios does not see the sata but there is a bios chip on the card and the mator with xp can see it in admin tools>computer management>disk management as a ntfs healty and active. I did a quick format from the same tool.

I can't figure out how to load a fresh version of xp pro on the sata drive. What I really want to do is make the sata my bootable with the maxtor as the slave.

I know the sata can't be a slave so I am looking for any help.
