Windows XP 32 bit on a SATA HDD Tags: SATA Windows XP Hard Drives CD-Rom Last response: April 21, 2010 9:54 PM in Windows XP Share Gamerx07 April 21, 2010 8:55:14 PM Windows XP 32 bit on a SATA HDD I ditched my IDE drive and purchased a SATA2 drive. Will I be able to install Win XP 32 fresh on this drive via CD? I have a SP2 CD. I am afraid I will need a SP3 CD for SATAT driver support. I was going to order a SP3 install CD from Microsoft until I noticed the shipping options. 1 to 3 weeks for delivery. I don’t want to wait that long and I am looking for other options. Thanks!

Check out nlite for that. http://www.nliteos.com/ Gamerx07 April 21, 2010 9:50:56 PM aford10 said:You'll be just fine. SP2 has the SATA support.
