Spent many days trying to slipstream the Dell SATA driver into XP using nlite. Have also tried hints and suggestions from Windows Seven Forums, including downloading suggested Intel drivers.
Much of my problem is trying to make sense of the number of apparent driver options to try to integrate.
Sometimes I have ended up with 1.13 or 1.5+MBs to burn -tried this, and one of them would install in a VPC 2007. When I then tried to use this disk to do a real installation in my third partition, after loading the Windows files got the message "A problem has been detected.........and Windows has been shut down ...etc".
With disks of the expected size - about 600 MB - I am still getting this blue screen.
I think the SATA driver is either not there, or the wrong one, or??
There are now 3 DVDs and 6 CDs in the bin!
