Hi I'm hoping someone out there can assist me. I'm trying to install a Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500 GB HDD to my daughter's 6 years old Mesh computer. When I try to load XP Pro it states HDD not found. After lots of Google research I now know that I need the appropriate SATA driver and to use this to slipstream XP Pro. I feel I can follow the procedure but am stuck as I can't find the SATA driver. The computer has an MSI motherboard with the following identification: K8T NEO then MS-6702 Ver 1.0. I've searched everywhere but can seem to find every other topic except where you get these drivers. I've had no success on the MSI website and even used their email support link to ask this question but received no reply. I'd be most grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Many thanks

Thank you for responding. From the information I have supplied are you able to suggest which one I need? There are two options as headings, namely K8T Neo - FSR.FIS 2R and K8T Neo 2-F/FIR. Under each of these there appears to be further choices. I am trying to fit the HDD as a complete replacement (not RAID). Much appreciated.

See if SIW can give you an exact model number. Just run the standalone executable and click on Motherboard. SIW can be downloaded from here (SIW Without Installer (English-Only) ).

That just tells me what you said already, MS-6702. I checked both of those mobos and they use the same drivers. These are the drivers you need: http://eu.msi.com/in...le&dno=2460&i=0 (VIA VT8237® SATA RAID Driver (For floppy driver))

Thanks -X-. I'm really grateful for your assistance. As you may have gathered, I'm at the edge of my understanding of these things, never having encountered the "Can't find HDD" before, or the need to slipstream. Thanks again
