There's a workaround on Microsoft's website.
This is correct. You will still need XP drivers. After you get everything up and running just run the Vista disc again and select repair and you will see the repair startup option and that will allow you to choose which OS to boot into, no problem.

I guess I'll just deal with it then.

(seeing as I have no way to install the drivers)

You can get a floppy drive for dirt cheap these days.

You can actually slipstream the drivers onto the install disc using some program...can't remember what it was called though, but I had to do it on my laptop with SATA drivers, and it worked!

I heard about this as well but figured it would be too complicated. A floppy drive is probably a little easier.

Just google it.

Yes, but it's not so much the fact of getting one, it's connecting it to my computer. It's a mess of cables as it is, and the IDE port is pretty nicely blocked at the moment.

So I'm up for at least attempting the slipstreaming.

I just googled "slipstreaming sata drivers into xp" and it found a good amount of guides, instead of sata, look for RAID I guess.

The program is called nLite

But as others have said, $10 and some temporary cable management is a lot easier.
