I bought a new Sony DVD writer(SATA). I already have a SATA Hard disk connected to my motherboard.
When I connected DVD drive its showing in initial screen(i.e Scan devices... Serial_Ch_Master0: Sony DVD writer xxxxx
where STxxxxxxx is my hard disk.
But in BIOS screen, I am not able to see my new DVD writer in BOOT options. But I am able to see the drive contents after logging into Windows XP. I am able to read any DVD drive from the new drive I connected thro SATA.
For my SATA hard disk drive during windows installation it asks to - Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party device.... or somethink like that. I press F6 and provide the Floppy provided to me(VIA SATA RAID Driver) written over it, which is a driver for recognizing my hard disk.
So I guess for my DVD driver too this same problem of providing some drivers is needed? So can I use the same driver floppy that is given for HDD? But when can I provide the driver because for HDD I use to provide during windows installation. Please help me.
