I currently have an xp pro machine running on a sata drive. Home grown.
I have since built a newer faster machine also with sata drives running windows 7 64 bit.

I really would like to keep this xp pro machine too since it has a bunch of apps that I am afraid will not run under windows 7 and even if they did I am not sure where the downloads are that I got them from.

OK so here is my idea. I take out the C drive from the xp machine and put it in with the other sata drives in my new win 7 machine. Go do the dual boot and tell it to point to the drive that has the xp pro on it. Being that it already has sata drivers will it work?

I have never done a dual boot but am not a total virgin to hardware and software. Just really do not want to have to load the windows 7 all over again as I have it running pretty good with a ton of adobe software.

Any ideas if I should just trash this idea or go for it. I have EasyBCD but have never used it. If someone who maybe has done this before could hold my hand or at the least point me to somewhere that has some instructions.

Thanks
First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware.
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
or can SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

You will need to do a repair or clean install of Win XP.

I am in a conundrum. I am using Pavilion Magnesium Gray Edition p6540f. There are no SATA Drivers for XP. How do I dual boot without it?

I found the AMD SATA AHCI Controller Driver from the link you provided. It will work on a desktop since I noticed it is all based on laptops.

Sata Drivers

I am trying to load XP on a dual boot so I can use IPX, go figure MS thinks no one still uses IPX.

So how do I load SAT drivers when I can't use a USB?

I am going to dual-boot install XP Professional 32 bit SP2 on a 64 bit Gateway laptop with Intel i5-460m and ATI Radeon HD 5650 Graphics. I can't find the SATA drivers on the Gateway site and I'm not sure what I should be downloading from the Intel site... nothing says SATA driver.

Also, does using a floppy disk mean you have to go back to those squarish plastic things?

If your Gateway has a Intel Sata Controller.
You can download your F6 Sata Controller drivers from here:

Thanks...

It appears that Intel Driver version 9.6.0.1014 is what I need for XP Pro 32 and it is also the driver that is currently in use on my Gateway laptop. Does that mean I won't need to be ready with a driver on floppy at F6?

I have the Intel(R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller.
The processor is Intel(R) Core (TM) i5 CPU M460@2.53GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1GB VRAM

You will still need the F6 drivers.
