    You'll need to install the SATA/RAID drivers available here (at the bottom of the list...

    When you boot to the Windows XP CD, almost right away you'll see a prompt at the bottom of the screen to Press F6 to install third-party RAID/SCSI driver...then follow the prompts.

    Yeah...that F6 floppy installation idea doesn't hold much water when nobody has a floppy drive.

    Two options:

    >Enter the BIOS at boot--you should see a prompt as soon as the machine powers up telling you which key to press to 'enter setup'.
    Disable SATA/AHCI---that's a generic instruction...I don't know yet exactly how that will read in your BIOS...I'll poke another member here to see just what that will say.

    >'Slipstream' the SATA driver and the Windows XP installation together on one CD.
    The program to use is nLite available free for download here.
    Their guide is also very good to explain the process. It may seem like a great effort, but you'll be very happy at some point to have a custom install disk with those drivers integrated.

    Nice one. I've been moving the FD from old pc back and for. Starting to cook my brain a bit. Just getting that nLite.

    Got the drivers on floppy and f6'd it. Got error code 4 File: x64/ahcix64.sys could not be loaded.

    Any ideas?

    x64? Are you using a 64 bit XP installation?

    Wait--I get it. x64 comes before x86 alphabetically.
    On your floppy, there are a number of files called x64...for 64 bit versions of Windows.
    I would delete these files before trying again:


    ahcix64
    and a folder (I think they'll be in a folder) called x64 containing files named ahci64.cat, ahci64.sys, and ahci64.inf.

    my processor says 64 bit compatible, so i was taking that as ...well you know what i mean.....so you recon delete those before trying again ok.

    Currently trying nlite, but will swap back to floppy, just to see.
    No point burning ISO disc if driver doesn't work

    Thanks again you really are keeping me going dude

    You'll be all right...the x64 thing can be confusing.

    Even if you're able to install from the floppy, you might consider making the slipstreamed installation disc just for this machine. You can integrate the SATA driver, chipset, video card and LAN drivers, and SP3 if it's not on your installation CD. Keep it next to the machine if you ever have to do a repair or reinstall.

    That's the installer/information for the driver. I don't think you can get along without it.
    Can you change the SATA/AHCI in BIOS to IDE or OFF?
    If you can install the O/S with the drive emulating IDE, then you can install the SATA drivers from Windows and go back and reenable the SATA/AHCI.
    Sorry so slow to respond...I'm trying to get the exact setting in your BIOS to change...

    Okay.
    In the BIOS...

    On the Integrated Peripherals Screen.
    OnChip SATA should be ENABLED.
    OnChip SATA type should be NATIVE IDE.

    That should allow you to install XP without the extra drivers.
