Yeah it's because at the beginning of WinXP at the bottom you'll see for about 1 second it says "PRESS F6 TO LOAD THIRD PARTY SCSI/RAID DRIVERS" at which point you need to hit F6 then have a floppy disk with the sata drivers on it

Copy the highlighted files to floppy. people need to include floppy of their sata product's that they sell. I know I never go one, but I know what files to copy to cd, because of my earlier experiences with raid.



if you use your sata as storage it is easier to do because you can install it within windows
