I have a sata hard disk with a MSI km4m-v motherboard. The problem is i cannot format it the usual way with the bootable Win XP CD. It says it cannot detect any hard disk or something like that. I had sent it twice to the shop last time and they told me that I need the floppy disk to format it. I didn't ask how. Now i am miles away from the shop, my warranty from the shop is useless. I tried asking some of my friends but they never dealt with SATA hard disk before so they cannot provide me with any answer. Can you tell me how step by step to format a SATA hard disk using the bootable CD and the special floppy disk? Do i need to configure the PC before formatting it? Please help me. Thanks a lot.
