    I recently updated some gear on a XP pro scv pk2 system, ie newer faster CPU
    and a larger primary HD, I ran into issues from the get.
    my MB is a GIGAbyte and I seem to remember reading I'm only allowed one IDE
    Device (Primary HD) So I installed CPU no problems, saw it right away.
    Installed Larger HD and all kinds of Problems, XP stopped seeing my SATA
    drives where I had my backups, both external and internal. I wound up having
    to wipe and start from scratch, with installing The sata drivers and still XP
    would not see my Sata drivers, so I gave up and went to W7 it saw the SATA
    drives right away.
    What the heck would cause XP to stop seeing the SATA Drives? Drivers were
    installed at the proper time

    Never having installed SP3?

    Note: Support for WinXP (x86) SP2 ends on 13 July 2010. After that date,
    computers running WinXP (x86) SP2 "will no longer receive software updates
    from Windows Update" (i.e., Automatic Updates will not work and Windows
    Update website will not be accessible) until SP3 has been installed.
    Extended Support for WinXP SP3 will continue through 08 April 2014.

    • What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported?

    Thanks for your input, however this doesn't address my issue.
