    Well here is my problem, few days ago i purchased HP-presario CQ42-258vx, i tried to install windows XP and the BSOD showing, after some research i need to Install SATA Driver, but Since i dont own any Floppy Disk drive usb,

    i found another alternative by contacting Hp active chat technical support but yet still Failed :(

    i get my SATA driver from here h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3355650&prodNameId=3355661&swEnvOID=1093&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ob-54270-1

    but strangely It's not working, i still get BSOD, and tried to use Nlite with The SATA driver from the technical support guy gave me.But For whatever i Do, i always get BSOD ;( please help

    is this because wrong SATA DRIVER??

    Maybe, how do we know what chipset the laptop uses?
    Visit support page for the model & get the correct driver

    Do you have a setting in Bios to make it IDE?

    Hi there,thank for replying :) , well, this is the only sata driver i could find for Hp :(.

    Apparently No, it bios is insydeH20 and It's very limited Bios setting. I cant even see my Hard disk from Bios, And there's no "SATA MODE"

    If you have Win7 already installed then just check Hardware ID in Device Manager

    Nothing strange..as XP by default does not come with sata support and for including sata support you must integrate 'Mass storage' driverpacks from'drivepacks.net' into your windows xp iso and then you can continue installing XP...

    But you can not be that much NOOB as not to be able to start device manager, storage controller, right click, properties, details, hardware ids

    lol, of course i know how to check hardware IDs, its just that i dont know wich one should i check.

    but anyway,In storage controller there is just one controller and i think it's for Daemon tools



    okay here is the screenshot, because it's much easier to understand i guess

    I think its much better to integrate all the mass storage driverpack with driverpack base into xp iso...then you can use this cd on any pc.But you must integrate mass storage drivers in textmode...That way you don't have to worry about hardware id's etc..
