Windows XP Pro SP2 W SATA Integrated Drivers!

Click Here ->->->->

many thanks for this. i have an intel chipset sata controller on my motherboard and an additional western digital ssd. i am not able to get the sata controller to work properly. my motherboard has a setting for sata, ide and pci ide. the sata option is not even in there. i am trying to install xp on it. i just downloaded the drivers for the sata controller and attempted to install them. this was the only way i could get the sata drive to work. i have no idea how to get the intel chipset sata controller to work. many thanks.

windows xp requires the sata drivers (smsi8108 and smsi8109) to be installed to enable 'fakeraid' and 'ide-atapi'. to do this, you need to install the service pack using a slipstreamed installation media. in order to be able to install the service pack, the windows installation media must contain the proper drivers. when windows xp was first released, it used a netdfs filesystem to read the installation files from the disk image itself. this meant that the installation media couldnt have the drivers on it, and the installer had to have its own internal copy.

this means that an external storage device is needed to install the drivers. the easiest way to get the drivers onto the installation media is to create a compressed disk image. to do this, you need the windows xp installation media, a dvd/cd burning application (such as windows media player, nero, or windows 7 dvd/cd burning utility) and a clean usb flash drive.

select the dvd/cd burning application of your choice, and select burn from the file menu. in the file menu, select the folder containing the installation media (xp-sp3). if you are using windows media player or windows 7 dvd/cd burning utility, it will not require any extra settings to burn the media. if you are using nero, you need to create a blank disc first. go to the cd/dvd burner, select burn image from file, and select the image you just created. in the file menu, select write, and then the drive that contains the usb flash drive you created the slipstreamed installation media from. in most cases, this will be the usb flash drive itself. if you are not able to see the usb flash drive, you may need to check your bios. if you are unable to see the flash drive, then its probably not plugged in or you may need to change the setting in bios to boot from usb flash drive. 3d9ccd7d82
