Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Need the Windows XP RAID drivers for my AMD laptop. Please help!

I am trying to install Windows XP Professional on my laptop and I really need help getting the drivers. I don't know what I need or where to get them. I need to use option 2 as I already have Windows 7 installed. I have already partitioned my HDD and such. I just need the RAID drivers. Please help!

Here are my PC specs:

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.

If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

You can download your F6 Sata Controller drivers from here:
The manufacturer's web site.
