I'm getting ready to remove Windows 7 RC and install my legit copy of Windows 7 on my PC. My version of Windows 7 is a XP Pro -> Windows 7 Pro upgrade. When I did this upgrade on my laptop, I ran into a bunch of SATA issues because Windows XP does not support SATA on the default installation disk. Needless to say, a few hours later of messing with nLite, my laptop is good to go.
I want to avoid this mess with my PC and already be prepared. I'm trying to figure out what SATA drivers
I need to use with nLite for my main PC. Is there somewhere I can go to get this information? Are the drivers based off my motherboard? CPU? Hard drive? Not sure where to start. My laptop's SATA drivers seemed to be based off the CPU (AMD) going by the name of the driver
