Sata laptop drivers

I am trying to reload a Gateway Model M255-E laptop that has a SATA hard drive. I do not have the OEM disks I am using my companies Volume license of XP PRO. Using nlite to intergrate the drivers into the installition I have tried 4 differant times to put differant drivers into the bulid. but it still tells me no hard drive found. so I tried the same 4 disks with a differant hard drive and the same results. when using nlite I get the driver intergration options window. (see attached Photo )  is there any way I can find out which one of these I should use to get this laptop reloaded?

You'll need the ICH7M drivers (ICH7 is the i/o controller on your laptop's motherboard), but add both the AHCI and RAID versions, because it depends on the BIOS settings (if you have AHCI enabled).

i am gonna assume that you are prob taking a mchine that had vista onit and want to load XP correct? If yes, then youll have to go into your bios and change the SATA setting to AHCI i believe. And then you wont need a driver at all, or if its set to SATA c ange it to AHCI, this problem boggled me for days before. Try that and report back ...
