I'm using an ASUS K8V Deluxe motherboard, and I have a SATA hard drive. When I try to install windows xp, setup does not recognize that this hard drive is there. I've solved this problem before by inserting a floppy with the drivers on it during Windows installation. However, I don't know which drivers I need for the K8V Deluxe or where to find them! I searched the ASUS website under Downloads, but there were no drivers that I saw that were specifically for the VIA SATA controller. Does anyone know where to find these drivers?

Have you tried this page? Asus KV8 Deluxe Drivers

Sorry, can't get the direct link to work, must be java thing. Choose your motherboard from the dropdown boxes, then click the Driver tab on the page that opens. Near the bottom of the list of drivers are 2 versions for the VIA SATA.

You do not need any drivers for SATA, all you need to do is disable all raid settings in the bios. With the newer motherboards and Xp.
