How to embed SATA drivers to a Windows XP Pro installation disk

HI

I am trying to install Windows XP Pro SP2 to an HP 530 laptop, but it shows the error that the hard disk was not found, so I believe this is because SATA drivers are not included on the installation disk, as far as I know there is a way to embed them even the Service Pack 3 but how to do it ?

Thanks

There is a free program called Nlite that you can use to slipstream drivers into your XP CD:

My computer used to have an issue simaler to that. I have it connected via sata but it wasn't detected. Found out later that my BIOS was trying to use my harddrive as RAID . Check to make sure yours isn't
