If the drive isn’t recognised by the BIOS there is no way windows will see it.

No, not quite right. The XP setup can detect the drive, you can partition and format it, copy the setup files but when you reboot, nada. It is the XP boot/setup/drive detector/whatever that sees the drive. Try is on a system where the BIOS has the HDD set to None.
