SATA Hard Drive Using Problem


Hi, folks
I propose to install a Samsung F3 1TB sata hard drive in my XP Pro computer. The motherboard is an Asus A7N8X Deluxe with revision 1 sata connectors. Will the Samsung hard drive be compatible with the sata revision 1 connectors on the motherboard?
I have heard that I might have to install additional software from Samsung to allow the new hard drive to function properly if it's connected to sata revision 1 connectors, is this true? I have searched the websites for such software but have been unable to find any, also I find some notes like Hard Disk Drives Using Tips Guide to confirm it.

Is there anyone have ideas of it? Thank you in advance!

Uh, Windows XP Pro support ended in 2014, so what are you doing with a 7 year old, discontinued computer operating system? Just curious, of course.


This not exactly on topic, but I have been having problems with modern
lightweight laptop SSD drives and Linux only system. Symptom is that SSD drive
loses ability to boot. Having a repair shop replace the drive fixes problem.
Strange part is that when the unbootalble drive is plugged into a usb connector
box, data can be read fine. I think it is some kind of problem with
BIOS changes for Windows security
