Default Reinstalling Win XP

May 7th, 2009, 10:35
I've finally gotten around to reinstall windows on my old computer so my brother can use that one (I'm going to format the entire thing and install Win XP+ some security stuff and then hand it over to him to do what he wants with it). The problem is that every time I try to run the windows installer it says there are no HD's on the computer. The problem might be that my SATA unit isn't the default on the MoBo but rather a newly installed SATA card on said MoBo. But Windows XP is still working., it finds both my HD's and I've installed WinXP on this computer with this setup before. So any ideas what might be wrong or what I might do to fix this?
