SATA question

  lenallen 12:59 27 Jan 2011

I have managed to instal win xp pro on my laptop by disabeling sata, now I have windows xp pro working, can I download the sata driver and then enable sata in setup, or would I still have to slipstream the driver...
Many thanks.

A most interesting question and one I did not know the answer to,but plenty of reading here

I think if your XP install disc has SP2 & above, then it should be OK. G

But if you're going to do any slipstreaming at all, you might as well do SP3 (click here) as well. G

I've used something similar on Vista and 7 but not on XP yet.
