yea well, thats 1 solution. However in my case i would like to get it to work... Ide works no probs, but ahci, obviously it's the drivers, would you happen to elaborate as to why this problem occurs. btw, when i uninstalled gpt loader in ahci mode ( since i was trying anything at this point ), the drives files were scanned and i seen a list of all the displayed dirs on the 3tb drive, however no volume though... and still nothing in disk management .
i got a unique problem, i have a c600 chipset and slip streamed 32bit Intel RST AHCI & RAID driver v10.5.2.1010 for X79, which installs xp fine in achi or raid. HOWEVER. i have a 3tb GPT partition(partitioned in windows 7 originally), which is unaccessible for some reason, during the windows xp install process in raid or achi mode the drives state un accessible( the data storage size is also inaccurate, but that doesn't matter since xp can't read 3tb correctly without 3rd party support) i re did the same installation in ide mode, the drives are accessible(obviously inaccurate data size), i use a program called GPT LOADER which allows 3tb drives to be displayed in windows xp 32bit no problems, but in my case it's only working in IDE, which brings me to this forum in regards to the c600 drivers. The drivers arent allowing me the same access i would get in IDE, i need this access to enable my 3tb drives in xp(3tb drives which i would require 3rd party software to enable anyways), even when i installed gpt loader after achi xp installation it doesn't show up in disk management, yet in device manager the drives are there, just no volume is assigned and it's not present in disk management either, unlike in ide mode it would showup but wont allow to create a volume(that's where GPT LOADER handles the rest), Anybody got a solution?
