Posted on 2009-02-12

I would like to install a SATA driver on my XP OS for Ghosting.
I want to create an image for future deployments. Currently after Ghosting my OS and core programs to another system (same make and model) the OS blue screens due to SATA drive failure. It's simply not detecting the drive.
I have altered the BIOS to all available selections witout effect.
Specifically I need to know how to install the drivers within Sysprep. Newbie at this.

    Might not just be a BSOD from lack of SATA support... The drivers should be in place, if the image you made already had them.... Unless you are talking about different controllers, which being same make/model is slim to none (unless there was a change in the mfgr run)

    What version of Ghost?
