    I am trying to install XP pro x64 on a 250GB SATA2 drive I have installed in my machine. I tried to slipstream the SATAII drivers in to the install but I still dont see the drive as an option to install on. All I see are my two PATA drives. Am I missing a step?

    I solved my own problem!! I used nlite to add my MOBO's drivers to my WINxpx64 install cd. Made a bootable ISO, and burned it. When I went to install it the drive showed up.

    Anyone else having this problem, let me know and ill be happy to help.
