SATA and XP Pro Issues
Jan 13, 2006, 3:08 AM
Setup recognizes the floppy and allows me to select XP driver from the disk.
Setup continues but when it comes time to copy the file from the floppy it tells me setup can't copy the file(s).
I have formatted, recopied, changed disks, tried all 4 versions of windows selectable from the disk and no bueno.
I'm dead in the water.

Well when I installed my SATA HD, windows (I run XP Pro as well) automatically found it and set it up. I didn't need to install any drivers or anything...

You should not have to F6 to install anything on that system. Unless you are using RAID.
Incase you are using raid be sure to use VIA most up to date 4 in 1 drivers and raid drivers.
