PCI to SATA adapters do generally require drivers.

For XP you generally(some drivers are included with the operating system) install the driver from a floppy disk when installing windows. I kept a floppy drive in my system back then just for this reason.

I used one many years ago that was sold under the Maxtor name. It worked perfect for years and even had an IDE port as well.

Also with the IDE jumpers, some drives need the jumper set to Single(instead of the standard master position.) if you have only a single drive on the cable. Others did not care. I did not use CS(cable select) because it seemed to cause issues too often.
