You may need to enter BIOS settings and disable SATA configuration. I'm not sure about your system BIOS environment but try to look for the settings of SATA, and then just disbale it. Or if you are in UAE, I can provide you a Windows XP that contains the SATA driver so you can install XP in your machine wiithout going to your BIOS settings. I can also mail you a CD, if you want.
ty very much after disabling the SATA NATIVE configuration the disk was able to read so far and am currently reformatting the drive hopefully this works
