    That may depend on your BIOS and card/adapter and if they are bootable with that combination.

    You may need to install a driver during the installation so the card is recognised.

    Find a driver and hit F6 during the install when prompted i believe is the procedure.

    I have a Windows driver of this sata card that came with it. When i have installed it within Windows, the hard disks connected to the sata card are only shown in Windows. What driver should i find and install when booting from the Windows installation dvd to the Windows installation program? A Dos driver?

    Search for "F6 Driver" for that card that should give you a few hits
