    I downloaded the Windows XP SP3 disc posted in a thread on the forums but I was wondering, what is the easiest way to integrate SATA drivers to the image and still have it bootable?

    Hmmm, this is strange, I just tried to install XP from that disc on my spare notebook which has a SATA drive in it and it found my HDD and started to install normally.

    Am I missing something here? :rolleyes:

    I thought XP didn't have SATA drivers preinstalled and you had to integrate them somehow in the installation?

    I used this method, as i did not want to use any pther programs to modify my installation disc.... and maybe you have downloaded win xp sp3 with SATA drivers ?
    Open TXTSETUP.SIF using your favorite text editor.
    Should be C:\OS\ROOT\i386\TXTSETUP.SIF

    Paste the following into to [SourceDisksFiles] section:
    iastor.cat = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0
    iastor.inf = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0
    iastor.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4
    iastor.sys = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0
    iaahci.cat = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0
    iaahci.inf = 1,,,,,,,1,0,0


    Paste the following into to [HardwareIdsDatabase] section:
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&CC_0106 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_282A&CC_0104 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2829&CC_0106 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2821&CC_0106 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2682&CC_0104 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2681&CC_0106 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C3&CC_0104 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C6&CC_0104 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C1&CC_0106 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C5&CC_0106 = "iastor"
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2653&CC_0106 = "iastor"


    Paste the following into to [SCSI.Load] section:
    iastor = iastor.sys,4


    Paste the following into to [FileFlags] section:
    iastor.sys = 16


    Paste the following into to [SCSI] section:
    iastor = "Intel(R) SATA RAID/AHCI Controller"


    Save TXTSETUP.SIF.
