I need to re-install Wndows XP but the installation tells me that it cannot find any hard drives. Hence, I need to load a thrid party drivers for the SATA drive.

The mainboard in this machine is a Prescott 800 Dual Channel but I can't locate any SATA drivers for this mainboard. I've looked all over the place on web. Can anyone help?

The SATA drive is an Hitachi Deskstar 170 Gb

Look on the mainboard manufacturer's site for the drivers.

Prescott 800 is the CPU, not the mainboard. You need to look for the mainboard manufacturer, like Asus, Asrock MSI, Elitegroup, shuttle etc, then look for the mainboard's model number on that site.
