Install Sata drivers in running system?

Recommended Posts

I'M BACK!! Hey troops!! How's things? Got a slight problem going here. I put a new mobo in today and missed the "F6" button during re-install, repair of XP for my Sata drivers and now the system is not recognizing my two drives as being Sata drives, duh. And now I have the ever-present icon in my task tray "safely remove hardware"  :angry5: They are listed during post as being third and fourth IDE's. My question is, can I install these drivers WITHOUT running another repair?  :roll:

PS. I'm getting tired of talking to a machine and reading  54 numbers to it and THEN getting a real live person  :haha: :haha:  :headbang: Activation wise.

Well, one of the drives is my main hd and the other is my plextor burner. My sata drivers are on a floppy that came with my mobo that make the sata stuff work. This has happened before but I can't remember what I did to fix it. I don't know if I can just unpug my hd and plug it back in. :?:

does your motherboard require 3rd party SATA drivers, i know mine does and so do many more.

Sorry guys. I just read my entry from Sat and it doesn't make too much to me either  :headbang: I was REALLY tired. Anyhow, I was running a repair  on XP and missed the F6 key during the beginning of the process of the repair. I installed a new mobo so I had to run the repair. The F6 key is what you hit so that the install allows you to put in the floppy disc at a certain time to install the third party sata drivers during the repair. I missed the F6 and continued with the repair anyhow. I have only two sata drives, one Plextor burner and my HD. Now during post these drives are listed as being IDE's and my system thinks it's a USB or something cause I'm stuck with the icon in my task tray that tells me it's 'safe to remove hardware'. I know I can re-install/repair XP again, but it's a pain doing the Activation thing, especially when you have to talk to a machine and rattle off 54 numbers and letters, and THEN talk to a person to get re-activated.  :headbang:  :icon_study: I was just trying to figure out a way of installing the third party drivers whithout having to run another repair  :?:  :tard::icon_study:
