Google "Install Windows XP on SATA" to get started. Anonymous December 6, 2012 7:27:32 PM Make sure you have IDE and not AHCI selected in the bios. or make a AHCI driver disk and press f6 to install the AHCI drivers at the beginning of the install when it tells you. XP installs just fine on a SATA drive, as long as you follow one of the above steps! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
