HI, I have the same problem with a pre-installed Ultimate on a Notebook, so what do you do if you don't have a diskette drive. Ok I know the prompt to add additional drivers etc when installing XP Pro but can we get it to add the extra driver from CD.
Just exactly where will we get a driver for SATA for XP?
My XP Pro desktop system uses a SATA drive just fine.
Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
Just a thought. My Vista Ultimate is an OEM Pre-install (service partition) so I don't have a Vista DVD to help out.
