Switch from IDE to SATA on a Win XP install?

I installed Windows XP on a SATA hard drive in IDE mode. (I did this accidentally, I wanted to install SATA drivers, and had them all slipstreamed nicely into my WINXP CD, but had my SATA set to IDE in BIOS.) Is there any way I can change the mode to SATA without having to do a clean install?
