I'm trying to install XP on a new HDD. I downloaded drivers from NIVIDA,
but nLite doesn't recognize them because they are not INF files??
I have a usb floppy drive, but, how many floppies would it take for a
42mb driver file??

Thank you

The driver is very small and nowhere near 42 mb's. You can't possibly have the right one. Is it the SATA that you need?

Sorry, I forgot to mention, this is a SATA HDD. Would you still suggest,
install without, and update later?
Thank you

Definitely install without and update later unless you need a driver to install. If that is the case, then all you need is a very small SATA driver.

(If you want, you could also clone your present drive to the second one. But you could not use both since a second installation requires a second license. Even if you are installing cleanly, it will not activate if you use the same key as used on the first drive.)

Sorry to take so long getting back, lost my favorites. Install went good, only problem.
XP doesn't doesn't see a modem, Device Manager, or Phone and Modem?
