thanks Jazz but that links to the vista premium drivers, more pressing does anyone know how to get xp setup to see the hdd when you go to reinstall, im still having trouble with that? remembering the ol' fdisk days :)

I'm actually repairing partition to my usb key after i accidentally deleted the partition as i didnt notice that my key with 7GB data was plugged into the laptop while ive been trying to get the xp install going. my tools, utilitys...i have a backup but there was a lot of new ones lol....

You may not be able to find drivers for XP.

Hi, You need to integrate SATA drivers onto your xp disk, you can create a slipstream disk by going to http://www.nliteos.com/ then find SATA drivers for your computer. Just follow nlites wizard and it will show you how to integrate the SATA drivers on the disk.
