Hello,
I am trying to load windows xp onto my ssd. I think my issue is that xp does not recognize my SATA cords. I have a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard and I went to their website to download the drivers for xp but it's asking if I have a 32 bit or 64bit system. Problem is I don't have any operating system loaded on my computer as it is my first build. So how can I tell from the windows xp home box if it's 32 or 64 bit? It says it's version 2002 but nothing tells me what bit it is. I'm trying to slipstream the drivers with nLite but I'm just not sure which drivers to download

If you have to ask then you have the 32-bit version.

Awesome so I used nLite to put the 32 bit drivers in and then burnt the disc to a dvd-rw and then put it in my new computer but the computer won't recognize it. I just get the reboot and select proper boot device.

Thanks for your help by the way.
