How do I get XP to install SATA drivers for the disk, and where do I get the drivers from?
Posted on 2007-11-23
I've got a brand new MS Vista Acer, which I need to downgrade (or is that upgrade!) to XP.
Trouble is, my XP install disk won't recognise the SATA drives. I know I need to install them using the F6 OEM drivers option, but that's looking for a floppy as well!
I'm sure I must be able to use a flash drive here somewhere, but I can't get XP to recognise that either.
The laptop WILL allow me to boot from a flash drive. I formatted one flash and the laptop BIOS found it, but didn't like the boot setup.
I've also searched for the Intel SATA drivers (or whatever) with no luck.
Any ideas will be very welcome!
