Yes as a matter of fact it does, that may be the issue why it won't install on an SATA machine.

Yeah that sucks, too bad they didn't add the ability to search thumb drives etc for drivers to SP3. Its times like that that I'm glad I bought my USB floppy drive.

Doesn't Intel have their own storage controllers, would they be the same?

i honestly dont know... i know the nvidia drivers for my chipset come with storage controllers i would assume they were the right ones, do Intel do generic ones then?
