Why I use SATA HDD with Raid mode, but Windows XP could not find the HDD during the installation?

Answer
If you use SATA HDD in Raid mode (non IDE mode) when you are installation Windows XP OS, you have to copy driver disk to 1.44M FDD from Driver CD.

If your M/B is SiS Chipset South Bridge is SIS96x, please copy it from \RAID\SiS\FloppyImage\96x
If your M/B is VIA chipset, please copy the driver from \Raid\VIA\Driverdisk
If your M/B South Bridge is ATI chipset, please copy the driver from \RAID\ATI\FloppyImage
If your M/B South Bridge is ULi chipset, please copy the driver from \RAID\ULi\M5287

Please do as below steps,
