You might be able to use a flash drive with the drivers on it during installation as well if you have one.

If he is installing XP, a floppy is the only way he is going to be able to install SATA drivers during the initial installation. It is a limitation of the OS. The engineers at M$ only programmed additional drivers to be loaded from a floppy during the initial setup.

There is another option. You can slipstream the drivers into the XP install disk.


edit: Attached are the NVIDIA SATA drivers if you need them. Put them on a floppy and load them from a USB floppy drive by pressing F6 to load 3rd party drivers. It will show at the bottom of the blue screen when XP sltarts to load.

or you can slipstream them into the XP installation disk.

My mistake, you can use a USB key to load drivers during Vista installation not XP then.

It took me a whole week trying different things before I finally got it to install without any problems. The problem is XP doesn't recognize Sata drives during installation.

What you will need to do is Slipstream a XP CD with Service pack 3 and you might need a generic Sata driver. You will have to search the net for specifics about Slipstreaming as its been awhile since I've done it. You will need the original XP CD and all 3 service packs (full downloads). I used a program called nLite I downloaded for free to make the Slipstream.

Hope this helps!
