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 to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.

OR

You can download your F6 Sata Controller drivers from here:

If the other notebook has the same hardware, worth a try.

Am trying to slipstream a sata driver so I can do a dual boot - have new computer with Windows 7, but need to also have XP to run older programs that won't install on 7. This is a great tut, however the pics are so small I cannot makeout any detail so am having a difficult time trying to follow directions. I got down to the section on integrating drivers and am stuck. Please help. I checked the hardware on my system to get driver names, then copied them to the install folder on my hard drive. I found them under system32\drivers - one is named disk.sys and one named partmgr.sys Now it says to locate the sata inf folder - could someone tell me where it is located and what it is named? I located an inf folder with same name as one of the driver files, could this be it? Sorry to be so slow on the uptake and appreciate any help you could give.

1) You can enlarge the pictures by clicking on them.

2) You need to download your Sata Controller Drivers, what Sata Controller do you have?

3) First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware.

Hi thanks for the great tutorial
But like others, I'm facing the same problem- what SATA driver to choose?

1.I have a Dell Studio 15 laptop. The model name is Studio 1555. I googled for the SATA driver and found one here:
Download Dell Studio 1555 Notebook Windows XP Drivers | Get Pc Memory
2.I downloaded the driver from the first link. There were 2 .inf files - iaAHCI.inf and IaStor.inf. How to tell which file to select? And once I select the file, which one to select in TextMode?
Please help me out. thanks in advance
