Windows 7: SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Hi all! First off thanks for all the tips I have read so far. It's as close I have come to solving my problem. But alas I'm still not there. Here's what happened.

A friend of mine who is 70 years old had been using XP for several years and was comfortable with it. He then needed a laptop. Got a new Inspiron 1750 from Dell. It had Win 7 on it. He used it for awhile but hated 7 (he couldn't figure it out, his brain is stuck on XP mode..). So his neighbor tells him he can get XP on it and proceeded to wipe the drive clean using Acronis Disk Director. After which he tried installing Win XP Home. Needless to say it doesn't want to do that so it has since wound up in my lap.

I have Nlite and followed the directions posted on this board but like some others I'm not sure what drivers I need. The Dell site isn't much help and I downloaded what I could find, they are all exe's and tried using Winrar to see the files in them, no luck.

What info I have from the Bios System info is this

Intel Core 2 Duo T6500
4 Gigs DDR2 Ram (2 sticks)
N634N Hard Drive, 320GB, S2, 5.4K, 2.5 SGT-WYATT (Seagate)

Using a floppy on this laptop is not an option so guess I would need to "slipstream" the drivers into the installation disk. I'm just not sure

Seagate offers this tutorial..How to install Windows 2000/XP/Vista on a SATA drive. and links to get drivers but there again, if any of the links would work for the laptop I have no clue!

Thanks in advance if anyone has any suggestions. And I'm also sorry this was a long post!!

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware.
Dell - Drivers and Downloads

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.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Your Dell Inspiron 1750 has a Intel Sata Controller.
You can download your F6 Sata Controller drivers from here:

Hi guys!

Here's my situation:

I need to install and configure WinXP on a system that already has Win7 Starter 32bit installed. The computer I'm going to install WinXP does not have internet access and is located away from my home so I need to be prepared for the whole process.

I want to slipstream SATAII drivers on my WinXP CD and I need help doing that. Which driver should I install?

Motherboard is: MSI G41M-P23 http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G41M-P.../?div=Overview

Is there anything else I should have to consider prior doing installation? Btw, I don't have Win7 installation disk (it came with the computer, OEM version) ... I guess installation files are located somewhere on the hard disk drive ...

Thanks in advance!
