    I have a number of bootable utilities that I use for diagnostic purposes. They won't boot to a SATA drive however, the drivers are not present. Most of my utilities will only boot to an IDE (PATA) drive. Does anyone know of a location where I can download generic SATA drivers for use with my bootable utilities CDs?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I doubt such a thing exists. Many SATA drives are connected to various brands of RAID controllers, even when not configured for RAID, and require the matching drivers to function.
