SATA Drive issues ... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am looking forward to testing Vista RC1, however I am fustrated. I am running a fairly oldish kit (Gigabyte Mother board with Sata HD (not raid configured) - (3512A SataRaid Controler) AGP8x graphics and 3800AMDchip.

    I bought a new SATA drive to try out Vista in a dual boot environment 
    Both drives are running fine under XP.

    Vista can't see them. I tried stuff from Gigabyte, which didn't work. I saw a lot of posts that tried to help.

    Question: Can anyone point me to the official Microsoft position on the SATA issues, and how to solve them? Or am I having some sort of weired issue? Or is Microsoft simply lobbing the ball over the fence and say, that is a manufacturor issue (Motherboard or sata chipset?)

    Any help is very much appreciated
