Default SATA drivers for Compaq Presario CQ71-412EO

Hello, I'm downgrading from 7 to XP, and I have network and graphic drivers ready on another partition so I can install them after the downgrade. I put my Windows XP SP2 CD in and boot from there, but after loading the files I get a blue screen.

I read on some other forums that you need to put SATA into compablity mode (IDE mode), and that you can do this in BIOS under System Configuration. But when I go to the section, there is absolutely no option for changing the SATA to IDE. I read some more and found out that you need SATA drivers for your PC, but I can't find any drivers for my computer online! :smileysad: . Can anybody give me the link for SATA drivers on my computer? (Compaq Presario CQ71-412EO)

Thanks :smileyhappy:
