This card is a stand-alone 100/133 PCI to IDE/ATA host controller. It is the perfect single chip solution for designs based on chipsets without an integrated IDE host controller or designs which need to expand the number of IDE channels to accommodate the growing number of storage peripherals with IDE interface.
- Why windows installation won't detect hard drive on PCI IDE controller card?
This happens when your XP is unable to identify your mobo's IDE chip. Some new chipsets like intel 965 cannot be installed without XP SP2 / SP3. Try to slipstream the new mobo drivers into your XP installation. Prepare a new XP CD and then try to install. That should work.
