I recently ordered a new WD SATAII drive for my system, and it's being delivered today. I had originally planned just to copy over everything on my current harddrive on to the new one and use it for the main drive, but I think in the long run to see any performance jump I should probably reformat and start fresh. It's been quite a while since I've done that, and my drive is really fragmented and for some reason defrag can't do anything about it. My question is: I know when you are doing the XP install at the very start there is a prompt to install RAID drivers and such, but since I'm just doing a single SATA drive, will Windows recognize it or do I need to do something special? I never bothered installing a floppy drive on this system, so is there any way to do it (if I need to) with a CD? I've built systems for others with SATA drives and I've had no problems so maybe this question is moot. Anyone with any experience with this can e-mail me or answer here and I'd appreciate it much. Thanks in advance.
