I just purchased a 300gb Seagate Barracuda and have finished the physical installation but when I boot up into XP (SP2), I receive no indication that the drive was successfully installed nor does it show up in My Computer. I've read the manual and it says to go into the bios so that it can autodetect the new drive but I don't see an option for that (ASUS A8V Deluxe). Granted, this is my first time with a SATA hd but I've successfully installed two other IDEs in this machine. Perhaps I just can't run it with two other IDE hd's in the same machine? The Afterdawn forum readers have been a boon during my computer building experience so I'd hoped that you guys could help me once more. Thanks.
