It should be on a floppy disk that came with your motherboard/SATA Controller Card

try rebooting your pc with the motherboard cd in the drive, that is how i write a floppy sata driver disk for my asrock might work for you. i dont know the mobo you have but look on the cd for RAID drivers read me file, it might tell you how to create the sata/raid setup floppy disk.

good luck

You need a SATA driver floppy for you mobo and have to load it when XP asks if you have any third party drivers during the XP loading. There is only a short while to spot the instruction so look out.
This has also been a previous thread so it could be worth looking back in the threads.
