You need to add All drivers & all Sata Controllers, use both inf files.

In each inf file, there are about 20 sata controllers.

If you go for only one, it must be the right one, or add all.

I added all of them theog.
But it doesnt matter i think i am fine by BIOS switching thing, besides i dont think i have any more of strength left for another windows installation. I finally was able to install all the xp drivers to my ideapad , which were a great pain in the neck for me as the lenovo site supplied me with outdated and unnecessary drivers....darn them.
