What windows XP do I use with a SATA hard drive

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi I need to clean out my computer and I have done it once before with the regular windows xp pro sp2. It was a disaster because I had the biggest problems installing the SATA hard drive. I have an AMD64 3700+ CPU with a mach speed k8m8ms mobo. What windows sp do I need to buy so I don't have to manually install the sata harddrive after reformatting? thanks

Well, the only thing you can do is build your own Windows CD with the Sata drivers already installed.

Neither Home nor Pro have your SATA drivers.

The OS's are what.. 5 years old?

So either get that floppy ready (you just have to push F6 when Windows CD first boots and says "press F6 for blah blah blah" and then put in your floppy, load all the SATA drivers, then continue on with XP install.)

Edit:
And if you have never added drivers to Windows manually before to build your own OS CD, I suggest you use this: http://www.nliteos.com/index.html

It is a easy to use UI, ISO creation, etc.
