ok, i recently posted a question about the WD 80gig SE hdd ant ATA cards, and got a lot of help, THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE HELP
well, i went with the PROMISE ATA/100 TX2 card, which i just got today via FEDEX(and just yesterday, i got my RMA from MAXTOR) .....anyways, the problem that has come to me now is that the instructions show nothing about WIN XP, the latest they
show isWIN 2000, which i think may be close enough for install BIOS instructions i think, but not for sure.
i have already physically installed the ATA card but not with the hd
plugged into it yet, instructions says to put in card, boot into windows(2000) then NEW HARDWARE WIZ. would run, but it did not, and then stick in floppy to load drivers for the BIOS. but the
i am having problems with loading the BIOS driver(s) for the ATA card, XP says the driver(s) already installed are better than the ones on the floppy, so it does'nt install a thing.
i tried going to the PROMISE website, but found nothing about WINXP really, and it is too late to call them(by the way, ITS LONG DISTANCE!!! ) does anyone know how to help me with this problem ? i need to get the ATA card's BIOS loaded so i can attach
the hdd to it and use the thing, i would really like to get it done tonight since i won't have another off day to do it in about 10 days
THANKS FOR ANY AND ALL HELP, I REALLY DO MEAN IT!!!
