Windows 7: Can you tell me which SATA driver I need for dual boot?

This tutorial was just completed by theog and is just what you need now:

Use XP SATA controller drivers for the XP install's target computer.

It may be part of the chipset.

Best to find out the exact SATA controller (look in Device Manager) and Google it + SATA drivers to find the download link. Otherwise just load in the chipset drivers.
